Karato Fish Market4.2
Shimonoseki, located on the strait between Honshu and Kyushu islands, where about 700 ships pass every day, is home to a large fish market. All kinds of seafood can be purchased and eaten here, but most famous specialities are fugu blowfish and whale meat (kujira), as Shimonoseki is the capital of fugu and whale fleets.
On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the first floor of the market will turn into seafood stalls, and you can relish sashimi (raw fish) and other delicacies packed in bento for late breakfast or lunch. The market has been here since 1933, but the new building was erected in 2001 and has a ceiling of artistic design and roof covered with grass.

Only a few shops open on Friday morning. Although only 2 to 3 shops selling sushi were opened, there were still a large variety of sushi you can choose from. The food were fresh. Some people will enjoy the food bought from 1/F at the rest area at 2/F, or simply enjoy the food at the seaside.
