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.

市場の二階の回転寿司は、まあまあのお店でした。しかしながら一階で売ってる丼や寿司の店?大丈夫かと思いました。衛生面ですよ 店の中を歩いてたらいきなり子猫くらいのネズミが飛び出してきたし寿司にしても山積みされて冷蔵施設もなく味はともかく衛生面でいつ食中毒が起きても仕方ないくらいです。特に今年の夏は、暑いです。冷蔵のない生物はダメだと思いますよ。体の弱い年寄り、子供は気をつけなきゃね

          Yamaguchi Main Areas


          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.
