Fish markets are one of the best places to get fresh seafood, and Karoichi Fish Market is no different. While it may not be at the same scale as a fish market seen in a city like Tokyo, this quaint market located in Tottori City still has much to offer for the seafood lover in you.
A gathering of fishery cooperatives, seafood shops, souvenir stores, and restaurants together has accumulated under one roof to create Tottori Harbour Seafood Market Karoichi, or Karoichi Fish Market.

This clean fish market has many things available for sale in a relaxed easygoing atmosphere (especially compared to the bigger and busy Toyosu Market in Tokyo). Being located so close to the Sea of Japan has its benefits, and Karoichi takes full advantage of this by providing its freshly caught bounty of seafood in all shapes and sizes. A multitude of local fresh-caught fish, dried seasonal fish, squid, eel, Tottori rock oysters, mussels, many different types of crab, and more are all available for purchase and samples for to try out.
If you’re not up for cooking seafood yourself, then you’re in luck. Karoichi Fish Market also has four restaurants available that serve various dishes using fresh ingredients like those seen for sale in the market stalls. Options at these restaurants include popular sushi dishes, seasonal dishes (crab, squid, shrimp, etc.), local home-style dishes, and more. If you don’t want a large meal, there are a couple smaller eateries where you can get various specialty curry dishes, udon, or soba that will satisfy you urge until you’re ready for a bigger meal.
Lastly, Karoichi Fish Market does have a few souvenir shops. Here you can purchase many edible prepackaged products created from the fresh ingredients available, or even some tofu products that have been popular since the Edo period (over 150-years ago). Chances are you’ll find something yummy to enjoy. Courier services are also available if you want to send your purchases to your hotel.
