A food market that feels like you're at a festival!
Hirome Market is a facility where both Kochi Prefecture residents and tourists alike come to enjoy an array of food, from local specialties to international cuisine.
As it's located next to Kochi Castle and packed with approx. 65 stalls, Hirome Market is always full of people. The recommended way to enjoy the market is to buy food and drinks from several stalls and bring them to one of the many tables set up around the market.
Kochi locals are known for their love of drink, so it's not unusual to see people drinking from noon here.
There is also a bar corner called “Hirome Bar” where Italian, Spanish and French food and drinks are also available.
Nicknamed "Kochi's Kitchen", this is one spot you simply cannot miss!

The Kure Taisho Town Market, has been popular with locals for well over 100 years. The most popular item at the retro market is the ultra-fresh seafood bowl (Kure-don), which is topped with your favorite ingredients. Another touch of retro that colours the market is the fishing flags that adorn the ceilings and stores. Called tairyo-bata in Japanese, these bright and festive flags were flown by fishing boats returning to port with a good haul.

The Kure Taisho Town Market came about after the fishermen's wives began to gather and sell the caught fish. The fish caught that morning by the local fishermen are displayed out the front of each store by 11:00am, so this is the best time to see the market in action. If you're not sure what type of fish you're looking at, feel free to ask the store staff - communication with the friendly locals is part of the fun of the market! While seafood is the main attraction, there are also stores selling local fruit and vegetables, handmade side dishes and even bags and aprons made from the vibrant tairyo-bata fishing flags.
