Take in the sights, scents, and tastes of Nijo Market, a public food market with scores of indoor and outdoor vendors selling fresh produce. Said to have developed during the early Meiji period, the market today offers a good mix of foods, with a particular emphasis on seafood. Buy fresh fish, crabs, sea urchins, and salmon roe to take away with you, or head to one of the onsite eateries to sample a cooked meal made using ingredients from the market.

Nijo Market reviews
Lots of Fresh Seafood! a Lot cleaner than tsukiji fish market and not too crowded. Since we came in winter, theres lots of crabs on bargain and cooked on the spot. more »
Fish market, similar to Tsukiji in Tokyo, but smaller. We were happy we went, but were not overly impressed with the quality of oysters or shrimp sashimi that we enjoyed. The market is a fun... more »
This place was commonly visited by most visitors, so I did. If you are looking for nice and fresh seafood, this is the place. Need to bargain with the sellers for a good price, sometimes can cut 30% off. Shops at outer zones (facing streets) cost higher while shop inside the market can get a good bargain. The day I visited was snowing heavily and less visitors around, luckily I gained a good bargain!
I can't get enough of the place. In fact, went there twice to continue savoring the freshest seafoods. My favorites were hairy crabs, big oysters, huge scallops, sea urchin and fish cooked, grilled right in front of you. Better to explore the inner part of the market for more precious, delicious finds. Hoping to be back there again...
