The Karato Market serves as the kitchen of citizens where the general public can purchase all sorts of fresh fish and seafood. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday every week and on national holidays, the first floor of the market turns into the big open-air seafood stall “Iki-iki Bakangai.” There, crowds of visitors from all over Japan and other countries enjoy fresh hand-rolled sushi, “fuku jiru” blowfish soup and “fuku sashi” blowfish sashimi in a festive mood.
