  • It's absolutely great to visit. Do not miss the vegetable market which is on the other side of the road. Best time to visit is obviously early in the morning
  • Not like Tsukiji, but very impressive fish working skills here. You can watch the expertise of the fishermen as they clean off the fresh catch.
