The Private Omicho Market Tour and Sushi Experience includes fish purchases at Omicho Market and a private meal with a sushi chef. At 13:00, you will meet at Kanazawa’s Kitchen, Omicho Market, and spend 45 minutes touring Omicho with Shimizu-san, the sushi master of Akame Sushi. Proprietor of his own restaurant for 46 years (in the sushi business for 55 years), you’ll tour Omicho with Shimizu san and learn what to look for when purchasing fish. Together, you’ll select some of the fish for your sushi dinner. After a 10-minute walk to Akame Sushi from Omicho, you’ll watch from the counter as Shimizu san prepares the fish you selected and creates a special 10-piece nigiri set, along with his famous dashimaki tamago (rolled Japanese omelet) and miso shiru (miso soup).

Experience Location

Located in the heart of the city, Omicho Market is the go-to place for a deal on the tastiest local food in Kanazawa. With seafood, street food, and restaurants galore, this colorful food market has served as the city's largest fresh food market since the Edo era. This undercover market is home to over 200 shops selling everything from flowers to kitchenware, and every kind of delicious food in between. Omicho Market tends to be busy in the morning, although it’s also a decent lunch spot, selling specialty rice bowls topped with seafood local to the Kanazawa area.
