I like this market a lot. The food there is cheap and local. And, the cheese buns there are must-try, super tasty, and only 180 jpy per one!

If I had reviewed this when I first was there it would have gotten a far better grade. However after this I went to see several more markets and we'll they are all basically the same. But it is still lots of fun to see what normal japanese ppl buy and eat on the regular.

Worth a visit. Never disappointed with japanese market. Good selection of fruits and vegetables and seafood! All fresh and yummy. Can have breakfast or lunch there. They are all linked, one lane to the other and in no time you will reach the train station.

Really good to see and smell such a wide range of local foods. I bought a very reasonably priced punnet of strawberries (delicious). A great place to come if you want to pick up some fruit on your travels. Compared to similar markets in Kyoto and Tokyo these are not crowded and easy to negotiate.

Take a morning stroll through the market and see the many fish, vegetables and fruit stalls as well as some stalls selling snacks. The local supermarket is also abutting it. The seafood stalls were especially interesting as many of the seafood on sale are only found locally. Walk right through the sheltered market and cross the street (sheltered too) into... More

From Kokura Station you can walk (10min) or ride the Kokura monorail. We came later in the morning, but we were lucky that there were still many stands open. You can buy delicious karaage (fried) foods here for a great price! Many other snacks are also available. Like any market, you are more likely to get a better choice if... More

Like any public market, most of the action happens in the morning. By the afternoon, there are only a few items left. I personally like to visit public markets of places I go to just to see what is available in the local area. You can buy a lot of snacks around this strip - I got ohagi and some... More
