  • With the family's long life to visit the local market in Japan, found that the original stalls to the beginning of the business, the second floor of the canteen is almost ready, the next time to change.

  • In the city, traditional Okinawa nouns, seafood can be purchased in this, in the 1 floor to buy a good seafood (Dragon Lobster, pearl, etc.), can be on 2-class cuisine, very convenient, more people can 饗 with more fresh seafood dishes. Very characteristic in the ground market, outside has the central pass and the peaceful pass, the very hot spot.

  • This bustling market was quite busy. There were shops and food stalls lined up on the sides. There were shops that sells medicinal items as well. We arrived a little late so some of the shops started to shut down for the night.
  • Loads and numerous stalls selling live seafood so sashimi are as fresh as one can get. Just take note opening hours are 0900 onwards and stalls gradually opening, not 0800 as quoted by many sites or on Google. So do not go too early!
  • Interesting place to see some local products. It was great that you can eat at first floor with fishes from ground floor. You cannot get food fresher than that.
  • An all you can want to buy is here type place. But one that should not be missed. A good way to experience the local culture without people being upset that you're an American.
  • As a visiting foreigner this market was amazing to visit. Fresh seafood delivered in the morning and during the day. Watching the workers in the back filet the tuna was amazing! Seeing it live is a must. All the people at the market are very friendly as is Japanese custom.
