Omicho Market Reviews
8月の下旬の平日に訪問しました。平日なのにとても人が多いです。ぶらぶら市場を見て回ると、と～～～っても新鮮な魚が並んでいる店が多いんです。あっ！、あの魚を刺身で食べたいというのが多いのですが、残念ながら旅の始めに寄ったので、買うことができず、残念な思いをしました。宅配便も受け付けている店もありましたが、その場で食べたいで、あきらめました。ぶらぶら周ってみると、魚屋で大抵あるのが、ウニとホタテの刺身... more »I visited on a weekday in the end of August.

海鮮メインで生鮮食品がいろいろ集まる市場です。 甘エビが安くておいしかった。 夜はあまり開いている店はありません。 more »It is a market where fresh food gathers in the main seafood. The sweet shrimp was cheap and delicious. There are not many shops open at night.
A lively and clean daily market of Kanazawa! It is the largest fresh food market too. The atmosphere along the covered streets are so colorful. There are many shops and restaurants with excellent local seafood and other produce. Have your lunch here! This is a place not to be missed.
One of my favorite fish markets in Japan. You can nice cuts of tuna, salmon and other seafood. Ask them to slice it for dine-in or take out.
