  • Sell them to all sorts of seafood and seafood President small dried fish is also sold separately. Many tourists in line, there are a lot of prices are cheaper per Isaac sells a supplement not only enjoy when you visit once, Otaru, Hokkaido. I'm easy to park right next to the JR station and easy to access fleet

  • Arrived at Chitose Airport, on its feet to Otaru. In the triangle market is "Takeda" I to went to eat the bowl. Shop in the most global. It was lunchtime, but can guide immediate was to clerk. Order a bowl type 2 to wait 40 minutes. Finally came the bowl. Use the vinegar rice from my Bowl in the Kansai region, speaking a little cold. But rice came out in the shops milled rice of freshly hot from the oven. (A white rice in Hokkaido may have. ) And begin gentle some fish stories, was not good to be honest. I almost left. The seafood had first arrived in Hokkaido. Not only in shock. Is quick to seat us, but I think they came out and the good thoughts in overseas markets. It was doom and gloom. Cannot be recommended.

  • This small whole sale seafood market is conveniently located just left of the Otaru JR train station. Good place to start or end your day trip to Otaru. Just a short alley flank by eateries and stalls selling dried scallops, fishes, prawns, octopus, and yes, giant crabs. Our visit is in the winter, selection may vary in other seasons. You can choose the crabs from the vendor and have them cooked and served in the eateries. Don't miss the steam King Crab which is of course really fresh and tasty. However my favourite is the grilled mackerel.
  • Market located directly to the left outside Otaru Train Station. Very convenient. Whole stretch all selling seafood. The prices here are more economical as compared to Nijo market in Sapporo or restaurants. Bought my seafood rice set with selection of 3 types of seafood at 1800yen. Fresh and sweet. Nice.
  • I’d highly recommend this fresh seafood market! Whether it’s just for a visit or to complete the Otaru trip with a fresh seafood lunch, this is a MUST visit! You’d walk down a sloped alley with shops on both sides of the alley. Usually fresh seafood sold on one side, with the opposite facing store a dine-in eatery belonging to the same owner. We had a great lunch there! Seafood super fresh, at a fraction of the price of what you pay for at the famous Tsukiji market in Tokyo. A bowl with your own preferred selection of seafood. Price? Just an idea of what you’d be paying: 3 items (large) @ 2000¥. 4 items (large) @ 2500¥ Pictures below is what we had , with 3 items picked! Cost us 2000¥ a bowl . Definitely filled our tummies well! The entrance to the market may be a little hard to notice but simple look out for the Chinese/Japanese characters 三角市场 which directly translates to “triangle market” in mandarin (; FREE WI-FI on site!
  • Small market with focus on crab and shell fish. Kind of touristy feel/vibe from the vendors. prices a bit higher
  • Best place for fresh seafood…don't miss it. Never tried before means never been to Otaru
