Omicho Market Reviews
En nuestro segundo día hemos te ido la oportunidad de visitar el mercado de pescado en Kanazawa. Aqui es donde puedes comer el pescado mas fresco! A partir de las 11hs empieza a masificarse de gente..... more »On our second day you have been the opportunity to visit the fish market in Kanazawa. This is where you can eat the freshest fish! From 11am he began to crowd out... but it's very worth visiting! You can make a tapas route and try out what each store has. It's amazing! The scallop skewers are amazing! And the octopus ones! we loved this experience! We go up to the second floor, where the restaurants are to try a fish dish. Highly recommended!
Nice stroll and good place for a non-fancy but tasty restaurant! Wonderful exposition of crabs, oysters and fish. Plus fruits are great! more »
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.
