  • You can enjoy it in any season of the year. Vegetables, fruits, seedlings, plants, flowers, pets, old ones, pickles, sushi, tempura, udon, bread, and roughly everything. I have never seen such a large city. It is attractive that not only tourists but also a lot of citizens come. I think that I will find time from now on and go frequently.
