  • Now it's about tourists. (I'm Japanese) and I saw lots of visitors outside of Japan. They told me they can pack and send to outside like Hong Kong. So you can purchase them here without worrying about...  more »
  • Not a very big market, and because we visited during the end of winter, it was a little wet and messy. Though, it's not very crowded and it's a good place for souvenir purchasing. Other than seafood, ...  more »

Although we can see that high Pricing comparison (more than two thousand yen), but in other Japanese cities or other country Ying this is unlikely with this individual Pricing until that delicious sea-bird's.

  • I'll try and address the conflicting reviews here regarding the price and freshness of the goods. If you come from the city, you'll probably find the seafood a lot fresher and cheaper than anything you are used to. If you come from a coastal area you'll find that it won't be as good as what you can probably find locally. Considering that Sapporo is a big city and not directly on the coast, I was quite satisfied with the quality and price of the seafood. We had ours cooked on site and it was delicious. It's a small area but close to other attractions so worth checking out for yourself.
  • This is a centralized place to get seafood. A variety of seafood is sold here from snow crab, scallop to sushi. The price is a bit high at this area. I prefer Hakodate Morning Market with slightly lower price. While price is much better at fishing ports.
  • There are many shops,neat Daiso,many choices for seafoods and things to buy. Nice place
  • Great outdoor/indoor market. Lots of variety and you can eat right outside infront of the stalls. There are restaurants to the side and South side of the stalls between the building. Slightly more expensive than the other market and much better imo.
  • It's a small market. Not quite worth going if you are expecting to spend more time there. They do sell lots of seafood there, crabs, etc.
