The Freshest Seafood at Dawn: Enjoy the Famous Hakodate Morning Market – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Hakodate Morning Market located right beside JR Hakodate Station is the fine food center of Hakodate. Here you can find many shops where you can enjoy seafood donburi, including the Donburi Yokocho Market and Hakodate Morning Market Plaza. One more local specialty is squid fishing. Try catching a squid and watch as it is prepared right before your eyes!

Hakodate Morning Market is one of the city’s most popular spots, attracting between 1.8 and 2 million people each year. This collection of almost 300 establishments is only a short walk from the JR Hakodate Station. With wonderfully fresh fish and seafood products, like crab, salmon, and squid, for sale, this Hakodate market is a must-visit to sample delicacies from the sea.
