Holland provided free shuttle service to this amazing market. Fresh fish as well as packaged fish and lots of other goodies. Great place for fresh fish.

Washo market will satisfy the foodie shopaholic in you, with the freedom to choose any topping you want on your preferred size of rice bowl. The prices are reasonable for the quality you get. The otoro I had was absolutely divine. After a bowl of katte-don, I was able to indulge in a pack of precut cantaloupe that was the... More

I plan to visit this shop from the review i had read from TripAdvisor. Is was too bad the shop close on Sunday. There are many Japanese tourists also came and wait but too bad.. I miss the opportunity to visit this shop and eat the seafood here.. feel a bit disappointment..

I was told about this market and the Katte Don. So I did not miss my chance to go there and experience the whole thing. Katte Don consists of a bowl of rice (purchased near the rear entrance) and sashimi layed over (pay by the unit) at the fresh seafood counters; you are in charge of making your own composition....

Kushiro Washo Fish Market is located near JR Kushiro Station. It should be easy to find it on foot. We drove to the market and used its underground parking which had no gate control (free!). It's filled with seafood venders. Some are more into fish and others are for seaweeds (mostly dried kelp or konbu). Some fish venders offer quick... More

Decided to drive 80 km from Lake Mashu to this market for lunch. An absolutely clean and smell free fish market. Inexpensive to select and eat our favourite toro, akagai, sea urchins and huge crabs and also to try others eg whelk, whale, etc. Definitely a must for sashimi lovers.

Big seafood market selling all kinds of seafood, including live Hokkaido crabs! We got a live one for about 7,500 yen, which they will steam on the spot and you can enjoy the crab in half hour. Really fresh! They are many stalls selling sashimi and boy, do they look really fresh! Visitors should really for the Katte Don -... More

Washo Market was near to JR Station. We visited this traditional seafood market for the trial of sashimi lunch here. Upon purchasing rice bowls from one of the stalls, we travelled around the market and purchased several types of fresh seafood and ate in the dining venue inside the market. The whole market was full of visitors rushing for fresh... More

This is a place for create your own Chirash don which in Japanese term is a Katte Don. The place has a dimly lit free underground car park but once you are in the market, it is a different story! It is bright and buzzing with stalls selling all kinds of seafood - from dried to fresh. Right at the... More
