Hirome Market

ひろめ市場(Hirome Ichiba)
Try lots of Kochi specialties and have a few drinks with locals at this friendly indoor market
Hirome Market feels like a festival every day of the year! Kochiites and visitors alike come here to check out the food shops and grab a table to enjoy an array of local and international cuisine. Nicknamed "Kochi's kitchen", this is one spot you simply cannot miss!
Located just a short walk away from Kochi Castle, Hirome Market is home to around 65 stalls. This is a great place to try a wide range of Kochi specialties, as you can buy food and drinks from the stalls and enjoy them at one of the many large tables set up around the market. Hirome Market is open from morning to late in the evening, but no matter what time you visit there are sure to find plenty of friendly folks chatting, eating, and sipping some of Kochi’s smooth dry sake.
While discovering the local delicacies is part of the fun, there are a few dishes that are sure to start you off on the right path. Katsuo no tataki (seared bonito) is the soul food of Kochi, and here you can catch the chefs searing the filets over piles of burning straw. Keep an eye out for packs of inaka-sushi (country-style sushi) made with preserved vegetables and crunchy aonori (laver) tempura, as well as other popular dishes like juicy fried chicken and gyoza (potstickers).
