Considerations

This market is always crowded with people and vehicles like scooter or loading trucks. If you want to explore the place, it is best to walk. Keep a small and lightweight backpack handy, while wearing comfy and breathable clothes will also help. Avoid using too big bags or backpacks since you will have to pass through swarms of people. Wear lightweight sneakers and avoid high heels or flip flops. If you like seafood and visiting unique spot, this is the ideal place. But if you hate seafood and you don’t really like markets in general, then this Japan fish market may not be the perfect spot for your exploration.
