We enjoyed the variety, and that you could buy everything in small portions, even a single oyster. Prices are moderate, and as we were afraid a special dish of sushi would be sold before our return, we paid it and the fishmonger kept it for...More

Cheap fish and good deal for lunch. There are many restaurants to choose from, just go to the one with many people - you can’t go wrong! They are good for maguro, fish tastes very fresh too!

Went here for dinner at our first day in Japan. Nice place right at the port where the fresh fish comes in with quite a few (about 10) small restaurants down and upstairs. Very kind people with limited English language skills, but that is one...More

Yes. There are restaurants with cooked food. The great place with the shinkansen delivering sushi even had fish and chips on the menu.
