If you’re near and have time you should visit but I dont consider it a must. They sell kamaboko, so you you should probably buy and try it

For 1000 yen you do get a pretty decent platter of fresh seafood. Of course if you willing to splurge more you can order the sea urchin and the humongous shell clam. Yummy!

A good choice of fresh seafoods that can be served fresh or taking upstairs to be cooked at a minimal cost. Foods are not really expensive compared to that of eating at the restaurants. An alternative eating out place especially for north Americans.

Many stores and stalls selling absolutely everything that you can think of in this 'market'. Do explore further to the side streets because that's where all the hidden gems are. We found a small restaurant (can't locate it on the map) that offered Okinawan cuisine...More

We like to visit the local markets when we travel, and this is no exception. Seafood markets are particularly a must-go, because I love seafood! Our first proper meal was at First Makishi Public Market. The entrance to the market is quite hidden, and initially...More

This 'market' is located in the heart of the Naha shopping belt. So if you are in the Kokusaidori area, you must make a stop at this market as well. They sell all kinds of snacks, souvenirs and food. Be sure to consult Trip Advisor...More

The market is not that big. You can buy the seafood and have them cook for 500yen per person. Nothing spectacular if you have been to other fish markets in Tokyo. The stalls outside the market are more interesting. But since you’ll be walking along...More
