Omicho Ichiba Market

When you think of visiting a famous fish market in Japan, a country surrounded by the ocean and brimming with fresh catches, the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo or the some of the famous markets in Kyoto and Osaka may come to mind.  We would like to introduce a market that is ranked as one of the top seafood markets in Japan, but does not have as much renown yet internationally. Omicho Ichiba Market in Kanazawa is a hidden treasure on Japan’s west coast, and a definite must on any Japan travel bucket-list.  Considered not only one of Kanazawa’s top attractions and sightseeing spots, it is a must for any seafood lover craving fresh fish and crabs from the Sea of Japan!
