Washou Ichiba Market釧路和商市場


Washou Ichiba Market was built as a people’s kitchen in 1954 and is one of the most historic indoor markets in Kushiro. The name came from the lively calls of “Wasshoi, Wasshoi” as well as the expression “Trade with Harmony”. There are about 60 shops in the market which sell fresh fish, fruit, meat, snacks, tea and flowers. Also, there are sushi restaurants and cafes. Choosing your favorite seafood to make your own original seafood bowl (“Katte-don”) is also popular.

Review of Kushiro Washo Ichiba

Reviewed:2019/10/04 Fresh seafood made to order
You would expect that every major city in Hokkaido would have one of these markets but they are actually not as common. I prefer this place to Sapporo morning market and its definitely better than...
Reviewed:2019/07/30 Market with fresh fish and just about anything else
Crab legs for 2500 yen all sorts of fish. Get a bowl of rice and pick a piece of fish cheap. Take yen as they dont all take plastic.
Reviewed:2019/05/29 The seafood is so fresh!!
Kushiro is known to be a kingdom of irresistably fresh seafood. A vist to Washo market will make sashimi lovers pig out as the options of sashimi topping seems endless.

          Hokkaido Areas


          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
