It was a narrow fish market with lots of tiny restaurant inside. The people were friendly. It is only a few walks away from otaru train station. It really is a must-visit place if you go to Otaru.

Had the freshest seafood here, especially Uni and King Crabs straight from the tanks. You can chose your crabs, do a bit of bargaining, and it will be cooked and served in one of the restaurants there. Sellers are all very friendly people.

The market is smaller compared to the Sapporo one, but it has a good range of restaurants for you to satisfy your sashimi crave. Really fresh seafood with decent price. You can always ask for a discount when purchasing the seafood.

Prices lower in comparison, however if its non season items may be same. I think its best you check around all the stalls for any specific items you wish to try.
