Shimizu Fish Market (清水魚市場) in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!

Shimizu Ku, formerly Shimizu City, a city of its own, before it was merged into Shizuoka City, has always been a major fishing harbor in Japan.
It is actually the biggest tuna hauling port in Japan (not Tsukiji where everything is more or less sent to!)!
Since Shimizu Ku’s merger it has been expanded and modernized together with Shimizu JR Station but the quaint old-fashioned market open to the public is still there!

To find it get off via the North Exit of Shimizu JR Station and walk for about 10 minutes.
It is pretty well indicated and difficult to miss.
Bear in mind there are two entrances.
Follow me for an easy visit and let’s see what is in store for us!
And remember it can make make for a great monthly tour as the fresh seafood is seasonal and there are many small and very reasonable restaurants inside!
