  • This is a tourist must! My family spent hours walking up and down the market going in every shop trying most foods and just absorbing this lively market. The shop owners were very kind and happy to help. We went for lunch and there was no shortage of food, but you could definitely find restaurants in this area for dinner too. Bring Yen because most of the places don't take card.
  • Lovely market and has everything you are looking for and more. Get some tasty treats and the perfect trinket for a gift. Don’t be shy when looking at food but please be kind and ask before taking pictures. Never hesitate when asking for a fresh snack to be made. They will be happy to make you a new one anytime.
