Great place to visit if you're looking for fun of sightseeing, observing remarkable local craftsmen growing roses in a rocks with moss and alike.
For fresh fish and seafood you better come up earlier, literally, before 6:30am, things do run away fast.
Veggies and fruits always freshest and taste like real thing if one would compare with supermarket ones.
Rice connoisseurs could enjoy real koshi hikari people grew for themselves by themselves and now are selling some excess of it.
For late comers there will be always a great food available till lunch time for sure made of fresh seafood and served in authentic, not posh but a cozy atmosphere.
