This is Shiogama Seafood Wholesale Market.
This market sell fresh seafood every morning.
As soon as you open the door you will be greeted by many freshly caught fish and seafood.
The tuna catch at Shiogama is one of the largest in Japan, therefore you can buy fresh tuna at lower prices.
If you are lucky, you can watch cutting up a whole tuna!
One of the most wonderful points about this market is that you are able to eat fresh seafood as Kaisendon (Seafood rice bowl) immediately.
This one is about 1,000 yen!
Why don’t you come create your very own Kaisendon!
“Satisfied with delicious and fresh seafood!!”
“Enjoyed eating, watching and grilling!!”
When you want to eat delicious and fresh fish, you must come to the Shiogama Seafood Whole Market!!!
