The Public Market, and the food court on the second floor, really are worth a visit. I had a sashimi set lunch upstairs which was fantastic value and really good food.

Good size market for tourist can try fresh sashimi such as rock lobster, stone fish, puffer fish and etc. A little bit overpriced but worth to try. Photo: grilled oyster 500 yen/piece

It's a really small public market with really limited choices although the price is cheaper than main cities like Osaka and Tokyo. But not much special about it frankly speaking.

The market is a tourist trap. Fresh seafood is sold on the first floor whilst the restaurants are located on the second floor. The intention is for buyers to pick what they want on the first floor and pay a small fee for the restaurants...More

This is a fresh seafood market within the Kokusai area. The entrance is very unassuming so best look for signs to the entrance. Standards seem to have dropped since we were last here a few years ago or we did not find a good vendor....More

This is a traditional market where you may try fresh seafood there. Buy and get cooked on 2nd floor.

The market was connect to heiwadori shopping avenue and kokusaidori so it's easy to spend long hours here. Lots of shops selling food, fresh products, sweets. The second floor of the market is also a good place to eat!

There is another fish market in Naha (Tuna City) at the docks/port on the waterfront. It does not have as much fresh fish on display as the Makishi one, but it does not have as many tourists and is very reasonably priced... More
