Karato Fish Market

Another must see in Shimonoseki is the Karato Fish Market.

Early in the morning the whole building has flopping fish all over the concrete. Then they are sold and vendors set up temporary shops on the same floor.

Snails? No, but they are on sale!

Freshest sushi in Japan!
We walked around looking at all the different fish. They look a little different without heads and not behind glass.

Outside we found a huge torii guarding the Akama Shrine.

Surprisingly, the Karato Fish Market did not smell much like fish. In fact, the aquarium smelled fishier than raw fish in the market!
