Situated a little south of Wakayama city in Kainan is the Kuroshio market. More of a BBQ and souvenir market than an actual fish market but still it has some great stuff to offer. The market is more of a food and tourist place where you can buy loads of different seafood and cook it yourself in a huge BBQ hall. The tuna show is 3 times a day at 11:00, 12:30pm and 15:00. The market also has lots of dry goods and Wakayama specialty foods – and one of the best retail sake selections I have seen with all the local labels from Wakayama. You can get the bus from JR Station to Marina City it takes about 40 mins and costs 510 yen.

One of my favourite spots in Wakayama City was Kuroshio market, Wakayama’s fish and seafood market. It’s just outside Porto Europa, and features all kinds of incredible fresh seafood, from sushi to tempura to barbecue.

Like a mini Tsukiji Market except you get three chances to see what I call the “tuna slaying” shows instead of just the one you have to wake up at the crack of dawn for. Yes, prices are still as expensive for a couple slices of tuna as they are at Tsukiji…but you’re in freaking Japan, so you might as well eat all the expensive high grade sushi you can get your hands on!
