  • Shops in the market, rather than just Bowl and Wakayama souvenirs, at an additional cost of plum wine tasting can be a drink at the size it was in one cup of 100 yen.

  • Visit 3/2017. Partly because I went on Sunday dedicated parking, and it takes 30 minutes before entering the field is filled. It is recommended you park there, so if you're parking in the amusement park in front of the Kuroshio market features in 1000 yen 1. Normally I enjoy tuna demolition show and BBQ ☆ fish taste. Next to the amusement park, haven't had time to be.

  • Visited this place for the tuna cutting show, it was incredible to see how "easy" the "butcher" cut up a very huge tuna. The market sell a wide variety of food and there's a candy shop nearby too. There are some restaurants also. And its incredible how there was no smell despite the freshest fish, squid and all kinds of shells at every corner. The place is very clean for a market.
  • Quite a clean market. The main show is the tuna cutting which lasted under 10 mins. Some stores sell cooked food and there are tables outside facing the sea.
  • Worth to spend at a day here, nice scenery and fresh seafood, better to check the bus schedule before go. The market close at six but most shops closed before five.
  • Visited almost 3 years ago. A must visit place if you are a sashimi lover. The freshest and value for money Chutoro and Otoro i have ever tried! Do take note on the time of the Tuna cutting show.
  • Very well-managed market!sea food is wonderful for its freshness. nearby is park and marina city lined up lots of yachts. Coast line has wonderful views for lovers. Must go place!
