A Historical Open-Air Market with the Freshest Fish

Every day, tourists flock to the Omicho Market, the "People's Kitchen" of Kanazawa, for fresh fish. This 300-year-old market is a great place to go for a stroll and snack on fresh seafood. The most popular item on the menu is the kaisendon [fresh seafood on rice]. Many shops serve this dish alongside a number of other shops selling fruits, vegetables, sweets and other knick-knacks. Don't miss your chance to see this lively market in action!
