The seafood market could have cooking and serving facilities as in Hokkaido. Tourists walk around looking at all the nice looking seafood and don't know how to enjoy them. Pitty! Such potential wasted! Ended up having food in a restaurant.

Besides seafood, they were also selling other Niigata produce like rice, rice crackers, fruits and vegetables. The sashimi looked fresh and affordable. Not too crowded (much unlike those we visited in Hokkaido) so it was comfortable walking and browsing around. Outside the market areas were...More

Visited this place on the way to Benke Sushi shop. Was able to see large verities of live Fresh seafood and others sold in this market. Managed to buy some fruits there. Nice visit if you happen to go to the Sushi shop.

I got here just after 3pm and it's a shame on my part because everything in the fish market was tidying up. However the meat & veg market was nice, full of local products. So at least I came away with souvenirs and a delicious...More

I think this sprawling marketplace is a fun place to wander through in early morning just to see the myriad fresh fish. But I also enjoy looking at the produce, stopping in the bakery and checking out the coffee shop later in the day. A...More

You can see lot of kinds of fish, sushi and sashimi and fish eggs, and lot of local delicatessen. There is place outside to eat. Too many choices!

Pia Bandai is more than a pier that sells a wide variety of locally caught fresh fish, it also has a couple of grocery stores, a bakery, restaurants and a liquor store that sells high end whisky and sake. While most of the pia bandai...More
