    Ishikawa Pref. Kanazawashi Muryoujimachi
    A market filled with fresh-caught seafood from Ishikawa Prefecture located in Kanazawa Port a 15 minute walk from the Kanazawa Port Exit of JR Kanazawa Station. Here you'll find the freshest seafood put up for sale immediately after being bought wholesale at auction. In addition, because the market's shops are directly operated by sellers and the seafood doesn't pass through the hands of various middlemen, the prices are extremely reasonable. There are six shops in the market, including a shop where you can enjoy a seafood rice bowl on the spot, a shop selling vegetables, and a shop which carries processed foods like dried fish and tsukudani foods boiled and preserved in soy sauce. Only in November and December, you can buy Kano crab and snow crab.
