Fresh fish market from Tomari port in Naha “Tomari Iyumachi”
24 shops in the market
"Tomari Iyumachi Market" is adjusted to the Tomari fishing port. "Iyu" is a word for "fresh fish". Sushi, sashimi, Ise lobsters, oysters and many Okinawa local fish is lined up at the market. It is a great fun to do fish shopping by communicating with shop staffs.
Okinawa specialty Tunas
The volume of fish catches in Okinawa is the 3rd in Japan, 53% of them are fresh tuna. Since then, many tunas are available in the market. Let's try the sushi and sashimi packs at the table in the most fresh condition as possible.
And the others
Of course, not only tunas, but also various other kinds of sashimis: octopus, shrimps, oysters and etc. are available. Some shops sell grilled oysters.
