This market is quite well hidden away about two streets behind the covered shopping mall. Furthermore it is not obvious that it is a market if one doesn't know Japanese as the front of the market has several restaurants. The market has segregated dry food...More

Pleasant clean market selling a wide range of reasonable priced fish, fruits, vegetables, local produce and ready to go dessert, crockery and cutlery . The sushi restaurant is fantastic serving excellent fresh rolls. I absolutely loved the fish roe.

TA forbids links which is such a pain! So please search Akita ports / cruise guide of Japan The above link provides different options. I'd suggest going to Akita station then walk to the market or you can go there directly.

It takes 5 min on foot from Akita station. It is not close to Akita prefectural office or Akita city office, but close to Akita station.
