Visited this place on the way to Benke Sushi shop. Was able to see large verities of live Fresh seafood and others sold in this market. Managed to buy some fruits there. Nice visit if you happen to go to the Sushi shop.

This place is a bit of a mix. Its got a couple of nice market sheds, one with a most impressive array of fresh fish and oddly at the back heaps of Japanese cakes and sweets, the other shed selling vegetables, meat and fruit. These...More
