Kure Taisho-machi Market

Other Food
You’ll find this shopping arcade in Nakatosa Town Takaoka County, Kochi Prefecture. It features everything from fresh local fish to processed goods, everyday dishes, vegetable and fruits, and more, making it a popular tourist destination. In addition to the morning catch, there are also fish caught in the afternoon, so many visitors come around 2 p.m. At the “Tanaka Fresh Fish” shop, you can purchase the fish on display and enjoy them along with rice and miso soup at the dining hall across the street. The “Kure Rice Bowl,” made from sashimi and household dishes purchased from participating market shops and served on rice in the dining hall, is another popular option.
