Kagoshima! Fish Market Tour Experience



This tour, sponsored by a number of local hotels and Japanese-style inns, aims to provide guests with the opportunity to explore and experience an early morning fish market at Kagoshima's very own Chuo Wholesale Fish Market. As part of this tour, you can observe the lively fish auction up close and examine many varieties of freshly caught Kagoshima fishes and shellfish. Learn to recognize fresh fish, get great cooking tips, tour a refrigerated locker, and watch a professional slice up a tuna. Witness the everyday magic of this fish market!
