I highly recommend visiting this local fish market!
Anyone interested is welcome to join the Onomichi Kensui Asaichi fish market!

The market has been held twice a month since 2023.


Fresh seafood is on sale, as well as sashimi, grilled fish, fried fish, and other items you can eat on the spot.

Every second Saturday, there is a monthly tuna trimming show.

If you are lucky, you might even see a mock auction!
