Experience Details
During this one-hour virtual tour of Kagoshima Central Fish Market, you’ll join your English-speaking tour guide online as they walk through the market. They’ll introduce the history of Kagoshima Fish Market and what makes it so special in Kagoshima’s culinary landscape. There are lots of opportunities to interact with the tour guide and other guests during pop quizzes! Kagoshima Fish Market, established in 1935, was the first wholesale market to open in Kyushu (the southernmost of Japan’s main islands). Kagoshima has a landmass of 600 kilometers, consisting of many tiny islands around which fishermen pull in their hauls. At the market, you can find a huge variety of wild fish and seafood that inhabit the Kinko Bay, from sea bream to shrimp. Normally, visitors are not allowed at the Kagoshima Chuo Fish Market, as it is meant only for sellers/buyers and workers, but there is a special pass for tourists who have signed up for the tour. While the tour has been suspended due to the pandemic, this virtual tour has sprung up to take its place in the meantime. On this virtual fish market tour in Kagoshima, you can watch the animated auctioneers as they announce their catches to the buyers from local restaurants and shops, and learn more about the wild world of seafood.
