Karato market, Shimonoseki

Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Feel the energy and smell the fresh aromas of Karato market, one of the largest fish markets in the region. The two-floor facility includes a large number of stalls selling freshly caught seafood, and the rush of activity makes for an arresting sight. Head up to the second floor to find the main eateries, selling sashimi and cooked dishes. To catch the market in full swing, head down early in the morning when traders and restaurant buyers arrive to buy large amounts of fish and seafood to be prepared across the city. A little after 7 am, the vendors will have a bit more time to answer your questions and chat about the market.

  • From Shimonoseki station 10 min. by bus just takes. I felt the excitement. I wanted to eat here for lunch we aboard ship from the port of MOJI, and came. About 5 minutes. I've seen many markets feel various differences by location. It is also interesting (subtly).
