Interesting tour
, Jun 2019
Guide was very helpful and informative about the place. Interesting to see such huge market that is very organised and neat. However such pity visitors cannot have taste for the products as it is only for wholesale trade.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Hello! Thank you very very much for your review! We are more than happy to know that you enjoyed the tour with our guide. Regarding tasting for visitors, there is a restaurant inside the market but it isn't necessarily that they use the ingredients sold on the auction on the day. So we are trying to find a way to make an opportunity of tastying some pieces of sashimi sold on the day there for visitors. We really appreciate your suggestion and hope we can be a part of your Hokkaido trip again in the future :) --- Misa from Hokkaido Treasure Island Travel
