Street

Located in Kawaimachi, Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture, this is one of the largest morning markets in Japan and contains between 100 and 250 different stalls. It is said to have a history over 1,000 years old, and many of the sellers and customers are women. You’ll find fresh fish sold by women in the fishing village, locally raised vegetables, handicrafts sold by women of the neighborhood farmhouses, and more, and the energetic sale cries echo throughout the market. The morning market is open from 8 a.m. to noon and is closed for the first three days of the New Year as well as the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
