Karato Market (唐戸市場)

Karato Market is located in Shimonoseki City. Local fishermen and farmers bring their fish, seafood and agricultural produce here to sell it themselves. The Market is a great place for visitors to buy fresh fish caught that same day, and fresh seasonal vegetables. There is also a cafeteria selling sushi and Kaisen-don (rice topped with seafood). The “Iki-iki Bakan-gai” food festival is held at the Karato Market between 10:00 and 15:00 on Fridays and Saturdays and between 8:00 and 15:00 on Sundays and public holidays; this is a lively event with large numbers of people enjoying fish dishes and seafood sold at stalls erected in the Market.

Review of Ikiiki Bakangai

Reviewed:2020/02/13 魚介類、すし、韓国食材色々で見るだけでも楽しいし、新鮮で値打!Enjoying seafood, sushi and various Korean ingredients is fun, fresh and value for money!
山口県下関市に帰郷した時には、一度は唐戸市場に顔を出しますが、なんせ、新鮮さが勝負なので、値打とはいえ、本当は、新幹線の搭乗日の早朝に市場ブラ歩きをしたいと、常々考えておりますが、どうしても前日以前に買い物調達となってしまします。特に、フグの蒲鉾のネット売りがお薦めです。

          Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
