Love this market! I tasted a fish that I never tried before and it was super delicious and fresh! I bought Hokkaido Hairy Crabs with decent discount. :D
Super fresh crabs (still moving!), lots of fresh fish and more. Things to snack on, things to cook later, things to take home and restaurants upstairs for sit down meals. Thoroughly charming and not manic busy so a pleasant experience to browse and shop. Go hungry!
Unfortunately when we came there it was mostly closed. We were too late and only some small restaurants were open. But i can imagine how lively and enjoybale it is if we visit at morning or day time.
Some awesome restaurants and loads of fresh produce and fish. It gets very crowded though, and queues for restaurants get ridiculous. I'd suggest going early, or later in the afternoon, say 2pm.
The weekend is very busy. Get there early if you wanna eat at a sushi restaurant. Otherwise they are tables on which you can eat small sushi/sashimi plates and other seafood that you buy from the stalls. Bring cash.
