The freshest fish in Japan

Furukawa Fish Market is a public fish market—but what seems like a standard marketplace for wholesalers has a fun and unique system for serving up fresh seafood.

How to Get There

The Furukawa Fish Market is located in the heart of downtown Aomori City , a five-minute walk from Aomori Station's east exit.

Furukawa Fish Market is also known as Aomori Gyosai Center.

Another market, the Auga Fish Market, is only a few blocks away. It is easy to confuse them, so make sure to double-check the location before you go.

Quick Facts

You can get tickets to buy fish and rice to eat right in the market

Vendors sell hot miso soup, too

The extra large scallops, caught locally, are a top recommendation

Nokkedon: a great meal deal

The special meal deal at Furukawa Fish Market is called a "Nokkedon." You can buy tickets in a sheet of five at 540 yen or ten at 1080 yen at the information desk.

First, buy a bowl of rice at any shop with an orange flag. The rice will cost one ticket.

With your remaining tickets, you can buy items from any of the vendors in the market. The variety is incredible at this traditional fish market, and in addition, you can eat right away, with bite-sized portions for this do-it-yourself meal.

The fish and seafood cost from one to three tickets. Think of it like conveyor belt sushi, except really fresh—right off of the fishing boats.

Eating your meal

Once you've made your Nokkedon, you're just about ready to eat. You can buy miso soup and pickles from some of the vendors, too. Sit down at a table, where you will find wasabi, soy sauce, and ginger. Bon appetit!

Furukawa Fish Market is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. But Nokkedon sales end at 4 p.m., so make sure to get there before they stop serving.
