Karato Market Shimonoseki

Hi, this is Yuto from Hiroshima Hana Hostel.

 I went to Karato Market this weekend. Karato Market is located at the western edge of Yamaguchi and famous for fresh fish.
 Only weekend (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), they hold an food event which I visit there for. You will find 20 different shops standing side by side, selling sushi, seafood bowls, and blowfish soup. As the fish was caught in the morning, that was so fresh and delicious.

 If you are not Japanese, you might have not eaten many row fish. Do not worry, all fish you can find in this market are fresh and safe, so this is good opportunity to try some row seafood which you can not have in your country.
