Although a port town, this place has pretty decent gyoza and fried chicken. Just look for the ones with the longer queues. Most places would have their own take on the tuna tataki. By virtue of being a seaside port town and it being summer...More

Enjoy drinking by purchasing drink and food from booths. Friendly air, you may visit by yourself and mix with the locals. Evening is the most popular but you can find some booths open in the morning and lunchtime.

This was a cruise ship port day which meant that no matter what time we appeared, this market/food hall was bound to be busy. We noticed a number of the cruise ship staff having lunch here as well. The regional specialty is the charred tuna...More

It is on one end of the Obiyamachi shopping arcade and a short walk from the train station. It seems to specialize in seafood dishes. A lot of food stalls clustered in mini-courts with tables in the middle area. It gets really crowded. Interesting, exciting,...More

Need a place to take in local culture, food, fun, and enough shops to buy local and souvenirs, this is the place. Friendly stalls, in a compact environment. After shopping have eats, from Kochi favorites, to other international foods.

Just like the food court at the shopping mall, but it is a bar and resturant . You can order from various stores and eat. Because of sharing a table, people sitting next to you often talk to you. ショッピングモールにあるフードコートを酒場にした感じ。いろいろなお店から注文して食べられます。基本相席なので、お隣さんと盛り上がることも。
