The market is conveniently located near Musashi no Tsuji (武藏之辻), about 20 minutes by walk from our hostel. It's larger than Nishiki but smaller compared to Kuromo. The produce is fresh and the selection is huge. We didn't buy any produce but we tried a variety of snacks - from fresh fruits to seafood for sashimi. it's a feast to the eyes as well as the tummy!
|Normally cooked crabs are orange but these I don't know...|
|Can you imagine eating a whole box of these by yourself?|
|So fresh! And the best part? It doesn't smell!|
|These are my favorite! Perfect when grilled over charcoal.|
Too bad I didn't get any as I don't think they would last in my suitcase :(
|The beans we had at the izakaya in Kyoto!|
|We bought strawberries from a few different stalls|
Although prices are comparable, some of them still taste better than the others!
|The strawberries from this store were the best!|
One of our mission in Kanazawa is to indulge in the cheap and delicious sushi / sashimi. Omicho did not disappoint and we had a hard time deciding on the restaurant we wanted to try! We ended up going to Ji mono-tei (じもの亭) and Mori Mori Sushi (もりもり寿し 近江町店) for lunch and tried various kinds of snacks (see below). When I return to Kanazawa next time, I want to try the Omicho Diner ( ). (I only found out it was popular after we came back from our trip! :'( ) Oh well, next time!
|Poster, you got my attention!|
|Oysters which are the size of my hand!|

|Oysters for every budget!|
|My only complaint: Japanese are too clean...|
I want my oyster juice! No power wash my oysters!
|Yummy grilled fish~ Perfect as snacks!|
|Sashimi on the go~|
|We ate these on the spot, right before lunch!|
