Kochi City Central Wholesale Market

The Kochi City Central Wholesale Market consists of the fresh fish department that sells tuna and bonito among other seafood, the salted dried fish department dealing with dried products such as whitebait, and the fruit and vegetable department. There you can purchase a wide variety of locally produced fresh food.
The Kochi City Central Wholesale Market, which was established in 1930, boasts the second-longest history of all Japanese markets. The market is opened to the general public once a month, allowing visitors to view auctions of fresh fish, vegetables, fruits and other goods early in the morning. Its unique “kaisendon,” or a bowl of rice topped with sashimi (sliced raw fish) of one’s choice, is popular with visitors.
