  • We chanced upon this charming small fish market. Turn left after exiting the station. Lots of little stalls and many small places for trying fresh sashimi.  more »

  • Cool little fish market next to the station. The shopkeepers are happy to tell you about the seafood. There are places to eat that serve fresh seafood.
  • This is a cute little fish market with some very friendly store owners with some great food but it is very very small and your selection is quite limited. You can walk through this whole market in about a minute if you dont stop to look. It's a nice stopover after getting out of the Otaru station though if you're hungry for some sashimi rice.
  • Lots of little shops and places to eat. Hard to tell which ones are good vs just like any other place. Though I guess you can't go wrong for freshness as it is a fish market.
  • This place is much more expensive than Nijo Market in Sapporo which doesn't make sense. I guess it's because the whole market is monopolised by just a few restaurants. Quality is still good of course, they're live seafood after all.
  • Great place to grab lunch before you visit the canal. Prices are reasonable for seafood. It is just couple steps away from the JR station.
