The Wajima morning market is one of the 3 biggest morning market in Japan. It has a deep history from bartering times where people would exchange products from the sea and those from the land. It kept on developing as Noto was a thrieving place for trading vessels buying and selling goods.
Today the market is lined with many stalls selling not only fresh seafood and vegetables, but also a unique range of handmade food products, local craft items and other souvenirs.
To fully enjoy this market, our local guide will introduce you to more stories and facts on the market and the area, such as the secretive Ama “Japanese mermaids” community still very active here; and assist you on interacting with stall owners.
To top it all, the guide will prepare some products of your choice using the barbacue corner on the street, and propose a sake tasting to pair with food.
