Savor Shimonoseki's specialty marine products in sushi or a seafood rice bowl!
Shimonoseki City is famous for catches of sea bream and young yellowtail. The Karato Market, called the "kitchen of Kanmon," has adopted a unique sales system for a local wholesale market, with local fishermen directly selling the fish they have caught. The event called Ikiiki Bakangai, held on Friday and Saturday (10 a.m.–3 p.m.) and Sunday and national holidays (8 a.m.–3 p.m.), allows visitors to enjoy fresh seafood in open-air restaurants immediately.
