  • Seems like one big three mornings, but are much to small scale and content. Stores also squid than a better assortment of turban shell, abalone more of scarcities. Compared to the morning market in wajima, was disappointing.

  • But not enough, held in the morning at the daily meeting, so worth going. Enjoy a clean and friendly people. I choose a store near the squid ikizukuri-rich, so is.

  • Hakodate morning market with similar yobuko is also 30 minutes bus ride Karatsu to go where you feel more friendly in La countryside. Originally the place was sold but banned whale now seafood. Since only around 7:00 in the morning on the morning of the opening that was as fast as ends. Quiet and secluded, we were able to get the feel. Where you can find squid of yobuko up. Maybe a lot of elderly people is the countryside.
