This is more a shopping arcade for tourists than a real, working market. That's not to say it's bad, it's just what it is. The tuna cutting demonstration is amazing to watch. Buying food and barbecuing it right there is a cool thing to do.

This establishment does not appear to be a real fish market. It is more like one section of the theme park, with a few small restaurants and shops. The sushi is overpriced and of average quality. Also, it is not easy to get to via...More
