A nice clean store comprised of various vendors located in the open market area of Hakodate. Products of many vendors are similar so you're basically looking for the best deal available.

I cannot describe well enough how fresh the seafood in this market is. It is as live to plate as it can be, especially the dancing squid that you can catch for yourself and have the stall owner cut it up for you and serve.

Although seafood is not "my thing", this was an interesting place. It was packed with locals as well as tourists and had every kind of sea species on show - both alive and dead. Very clean. Interesting!

More 'sanitized' as compared to those stalls by the roadside, who are subject to the elements, so this indoor market makes sense, in a way. Great atmosphere, lots of stalls to sample almost everything Hakodate has to offer. Ate the great scallops, uni and melons....More

From the port to Hakodate morning market, it is ten minutes by taxi. But, for you, an extra bus will run. Please enjoy sightseeing in Hakodate.
