    It was a lively market. Many groups doing from binge drinking. The location is not a normal market, there are a lot of bars and food stalls. Because it is hard not to eat is not enough place to sit down and be secure.

    I visited the Yosakoi Festival the day before. I surely would be crowded, walks around 2 pm. Was made of a line of people enjoying a late lunch to talk shop. From the shop for what you want and make an educated guess to shiromi, Kochi. Come back around five o'clock, the first seat. Than 2 was available. Each store also some seats and booking was so able. Then get food and drinks in the shops of your eyes. Moray eel, Sunfish, Black Rock it, such as stock, despite what I imagined. Seat was vacant, but found a common topic, great excitement! Mean you can hit people I met in that place is fun with exciting, fun, night of Kochi is determined by this think. Taken from morning incidentally so was good, breakfast and lunch.

    Great food and great times! One of the best experiences I have had in Japan. I was wondering though the shopping arcade and while at the MTG shop I ran into another foreigner who then took me to this place and also a little stand up bar outside on the main road with foreign English speaking bartender. Many of the regulars of this little stand up bar like to come to practice their English. This made it fun and easy to communicate with locals at the bar. They also recommended where to get food inside and the flavor was incredible. This is a must see attraction of any evening in town.

    Quite a large food court with wide selection of Asian cuisines, prices are affordable. Biggest downside is smell of cigarette everywhere.

    Great place to eat! Lots of selection of local Japanese foods and delicacies with various selection of bottled and draft beers. A food court style of setting where there are food kiosks and tables in the middle. A must visit here in Kochi.

    The indian naan bread was very tasty, but funny they provided ketchup! Maybe to fit in the local taste. They cooked bonito in a traditional way and it was awesome!
