About this sight

Opened in 1953, The Kagoshima Fish Market has all the ambiance of Tsukiji in its heyday. From witnessing the morning's catch coming in fresh from their vessels to being tossed into crates, before being whisked off via forklift truck to the auction rooms where wholesalers battle rigorously to get the best price for their customers.

Once you have experienced the commotion of the auction area, it's time to savor some of the freshest seafood that your every likely to try. On the way to the three restaurants which the market provides, you'll pass through a number of mobile food trucks where you can witness skilled business owners meticulously filleting and preparing what they have just purchased from the market's wholesalers.
