  • Smaller than i expected, but i wasnt let down by the fresh seafood. Crabs were much more reasonable priced than eating in a restaurant, but my personal favorite had to be the sea urchin don...the sea urchin were so sweet, eating along with the slightly vinegared warm rice, and adding a bit of soy sauce and wasabi. Omg...the flavor was so unforgettable. Better than eating the sea urchin alone as a sashimi.
  • Only a handful of sellers selling an overpriced food, which you can have at half of the price at other fresh seafood market in hakodate, tsukiji market in Tokyo or Kuromon market in Osaka.
  • Not worth visiting. It is too small and not much thing to see. Hakodate morning market is much bigger
  • Lovely seafood shops, close to city centre, worth a try.
  • The most famous market in Sapporo, it is the must-go sightseeing point for 1st Sapporo travel.
