  • It is a small market in front of Otaru station. Was lined with small edible Bowl, such as other seafood can be purchased, shop corridors. I think trains until a little to time crush for a time, as well as attract not so heavy.

  • Oct 13 I love food markets, especially those featuring fresh seafood. Of all the places on earth, this one has perhaps the shortest distance from pier to market with the widest spectrum of seafood. I ...  more »
  • ANA special Bowl called a co-production Bowl "Takeda" located in the dining room. So far away from the airport and airline specific collaboration menu is amazing. It was a bowl of filling is, of course, I ordered.

  • Ate the restaurant nearer to the train station. The long food waiting is worth it for the price of set meal (i had salmon set + change to crab soup = 800yen). Fresh and filling ----- IG:@joysofyz
  • 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.
  • Great place for fresh seafood! The price is still affordable!
