Kure Taisho Town Market

久礼大正町市場(Kure Taishomachi Ichiba)
Taste delicious seafood at this retro fish market
For over 100 years, the Kure Taisho Town Market in the town of Nakatosa has been the community’s beloved shopping arcade for all kinds of foods, including freshly-caught seafood, home cooked side dishes, vegetables and fruit.
Take a stroll through the quaint alley lined with 9 shops decorated with large colorful fishermen’s flags, traditionally flown on fishing boats to indicate a successful catch. Make sure to visit the market by 11:00am, to see the fish caught that morning being sold and experience the lively atmosphere. If you’re also not sure what type of fish you’re looking at, feel free to ask the friendly shop owners. Interacting with the community is part of the beauty and fun of the market!
For lunch, try the market’s most popular dish called Kure-don, a bowl of rice topped with the fresh seafood of your choice. We highly recommend trying katsuo-no-tataki (seared bonito), which is the universal soul food of Kochi Prefecture.
