Jagalchi Fish Market

Just before boarding my ferry back to Japan, I took a walk around the Jagalchi Fish Market. I guess it can be compared to Tsukiji(<–click here to see my post about Tsukiji) fish market in Tokyo. But a couple of key differences struck me. Most of the people who who working in the market were women, unlike Tuskiji where almost everyone is male. Also, despite being around noontime, the market was still very busy. Tsukiji is busiest at 5 am when the big tuna auction takes place and is basically closed by 10 am everyday. Jagalchi was not only busy at noon, but they were still auctioning off fish. Jalgalchi felt like a more relaxed place than Tsukiji.

lady selling fish

She sells sea fish by the sea shore. Anyone know what kind of fish this is? I have no idea. I know very little about fish.

squid

These squid are still alive and thrashing about.

dried fish

Apparently this area is famous for this kind of dried fish. My friend told me she sees people selling them all over the place, but has not once witnessed someone purchasing one.

fruit

They were selling other things nearby too, like this fruit.
