Karato market, Shimonoseki

(4/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • It's almost feel Shimonoseki and say, go here. Just before and after the lunch was congested even get in the parking lot. Fortunately 200 meters away from the municipal parking lot I got was parked without difficulty. It is very recommended.

  • 原來這就是真正的海鮮市場非常熱鬧攤位很多,都是日本當地人比較多,壽司都很有誠意的肉都很大片,炸物也好吃,河豚可以嘗鮮但是比起其他的東西味道真的沒有好吃到哪裡去啊  more »
  • 從門司港搭船到唐戶市場, 唐戶市場在碼頭右邊步行5至10分鐘 怎料遇著唐戶市場每月的公休日 大家出發前要先查詢一下 不過唐戶市場即使閉門, 旁邊仍有美味魚生食店 建議星期六日來, 會比較熱鬧  more »
