    This is 1 of 2 seafood markets in Sapporo. This being the closest to city center & more touristy. Not as big as the wholesale market. Still worth a stop though. Always like walking around morning mark...  more »

    At the left edge of the Tanuki. "Buy local" and is variously told him that, but well, friendly to tourists. I have sent gifts of fish and shellfish from here.

    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.

    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.
