  • It is a fairly large market. I'm also the demolition of the macro on a regular basis. I think fish other than pretty and kind of souvenir items, usually available here. Very nice dining room, from the seafood from the meat menu rich in fresh and very delicious. It is recommended to kill time.

  • Not only ordinary in the seafood, from pickled stuffed Panda, pharmacy, 100-yen shops vathi. Are quite substantial, so you want to visit on the way back. It is recommended. He didn't buy anything this time, so I ate grilled squid.

  • This place is awesome. It's bustling with activity, and there's so much to see. The kids and I loved it. We also had some very delicious food and samples. Great place to kill some time!
  • Good place to pick up food while on a bus trip, has a tax free drug store as well for tourists doing some shopping. But not to be missed is their seafood market of fresh catch fish & other seafood... Even Whale meat!!
  • This is the tsukiji market in Kansai. Look no further for fresh seafood. You can rent a barbeque table right outside the market to cook your favourites. Toretore also sells meat and veggies, which can definitely cater anyone coming for a meal. Souvenirs store are also in there, so be ready for a one stop shop in shirahama. Hope to see you guys there.
  • Big market, lots of choice. Rent a BBQ to grill up your purchase
  • Good range of fresh produce with a good price if purchase larger quantities eg the fermented squid is ¥380 each or three for ¥1000! Loving the customer service of the young sales personnel ☺
