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.

Very colourful . Bought reasonable clothing. Be prepared for the seafood encounter by sight and smell and the varieties of matcha, if you are interested. Without much Japanese we were still able to communicate in the market.

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.
