Nagahama Fish Market

"Nagahama Fish Market is located around 12 minutes' walk from the Akasaka subway station, or it can be reached by using the Nishitetsu Bus service and getting off at the Nagahama Ni-Chome bus stop; the market is two minutes' walk from the bus stop. Renowned for its fresh fish and seafood, Nagahama Fish Market is the fourth largest fish market in Japan in terms of the amount of fish handled, and is known informally as ""Hakata's Kitchen."" With the aim of making the market a friendly place that local residents feel comfortable visiting, Nagahama Fish Market has adopted the latest technology; Shijo Kaikan building at the heart of the market complex has restaurants where visitors can enjoy delicious seafood, as well as Uoching Plaza where people can have fun learning about fish. The second Saturday of every month is ""Citizen Appreciation Day,"" when ordinary members of the public are allowed into the area where the wholesale fish auctions take place to purchase fish for themselves."
