If you want to try all kinds of seafood, this is definitely the place. We were there early so missed lots of the tourists. Worth a short visit.

We stumbled upon this market while staying at the UAN hotel which is just around the corner. It was a great find and we ended up eating there, in a hole in the wall, and had terrific, freshly grilled seafood :)

A foodie paradise, both for take-aways and souvenirs, but also to eat at any of the myriad restaurants scattered around the market. Well worth a visit or two if you are a market fan!

Really a cool place to go just to hang around, listen to the japanese speak/scream, look and taste at the delicious seafood! We tasted a 10$ oyster! Lots of restaurant there too and some craft. Take a moment to go there before going to Kanazawa...More

We arrived around 3pm and many of the stalls had shut for the day. I really enjoyed what I saw but can only imagine what it is like when it opens and all the fish stalls are open...

We visited on a holiday weekend and found that it was very busy / crowded but this added to the atmosphere and excitement. Most of the restaurants had queues waiting but the smaller food stalls within the market offered snacks without any waiting. Fascinating varieties...More

We are here now and it is really cold and still as busy as ever, I don't think the weather will affect the day to day stuff much.
