  • I'm almost in tourists to use local people? Is price too high. Know a good old fashioned market atmosphere.

  • The underground is the fishing market, the fishing market is more Batman narrow, the children better wait in the room, there is a place to rest, more wide fall. Most stores can communicate in national, Cantonese, and feel the same. On the floor is the deli, if the processing needs to pay more than 500 yen, another fried rice and cooked food. Sweet Lobster, Fanli, such as only 300 yen a pack, raw oysters, big lobster about 400 yen A, are cheap.

  • Entered the alley from Naha Kokusai Street. Spread meat and fish market on the first floor, had become a dining room on the second floor. Cooking fee is required and pick the fish in the market, bringing it to the dining room, but the dish to make it. To people who want to eat fish seems to be Okinawa recommended is not so clean eating alone. I thought it was tourist customer price.

  • Good place to see various types of seafood. Do more that there is a special door to go into the seafood section. It’s not so easily found so may need to ask around.
  • I had a great time here, it’s fun just to walk around and look a stuff, but if thing look good you can just buy them and take it upstairs to be cooked. Sure you will pay a little more, but it’s not unreasonable. And the experience we had was great. I’d do it again in a sec.
  • Not bad, the small goods stores are nice but had seen better seafood market in other parts of Japan and Korea. A little hard to find the 2 small door entrances to the fresh seafood area. Note seafood market is also not open on the last Sunday of each month.
  • More to see than one trip will allow. One stop shopping for gifts and groceries. Old school open market feel with lots of local traffic.
  • Lots of weird looking Okinawa food, but lots of taste samples, so try it! It's super good!! Would recommend going with a local or native speaker because the workers don't know much English.
