  • I did not learn about this market place til our last day in town. You could spend all day perusing the various shops. It's a tourist trap but who cares. Fun place!  more »
  • Worth visiting. Order fresh seafood at ground level and have them cook at level one. Be early last cooking at 8.30pm, diners have to finish food by 9pm.  more »
  • When wandering in the Kokusai-dori street we walked past an entrance of a market. We thought it was just a small market, but we could walk here for hours! This hidden market is much bigger than expect...  more »

  • The market on the first floor is worth visiting. They feature many different shops selling from fresh seafood to souvenirs. You can find almost anything from this place. The price is reasonable too. The restaurant on the second floor is over priced in my opinion given the quality.
  • Excellent value food here. Buy something from the market and pay Y500 for it to be cooked upstairs. Upstairs restaurants also have good local food. English menus also available.
  • Definitely one place to go if your going to Naha. It's a great place for anyone that loves seafood and fish and would like to try new things. You can choose what you wanna eat downstairs and they will cook it for you on the first floor. You can also directly go the the first floor to chose a restaurant.
  • The market does say 9PM, but many shops actually start closing around 7PM if it isn't busy. Good place to find little trinkets or jewelry!
  • The seafood wasn't that great, comparative to Japanese standards. The seafood wet market is run by chinese so don't expect the food to be very authentically Japanese.
