Gastronomic Destinations: Kanazawa City 3: Ohmichou Market-近江町マーケット!


Crabs, crabs, crabs!

The Ohmichou market is certainly one of the most famous spots in Kanazawa City!
It was established 300 odd years ago during the Japan Feudal Times and is still striving!
For more information read one of their homepages I included at the bottom of this article! No less than 5 languages! Great promotion that some places should take good note of!

Alright, let me take you along during my first ever visit last week!

One of the many entrances to the market. Note the curtain to keep the cold out!

Past the entrance!

Naturally, Tengu, the biggest meat company in town has its shop inside!

Ishikawa Prefecture is famous for its vegetables!

But seafood is the main attraction!

Very expensive crabs, many of them still alive!

More crabs and shrimps!

Sweet shrimps!

Enormous oysters!

Aori Ika/Bigfin Reef Squid!

Big and fresh shiitake mushrooms!


Boiled octopus!

Local vegetables for every day food!


Naturally, there are many restaurants inside, especially on the second floor, offering super fresh seafood in particular!

Wasabi from Shizuoka (cheap variety from Izu, though!)!

Beautifully colored cute little cauliflowers!

Lily roots and taro roots/satoimo!

All kinds of freshly fried food are available for immediate consumption and enjoyment!

We were particularly interested in this famous shop for a quick morning snack!

Octopus and beef Croquettes!

Remember this noren/curtain! We definitely recommend the place!
