Hasshoku Center,
a theme park of Hachinohe foods

One of the largest markets in Japan, offering all the foods originating in Hachinohe.

Hasshoku Center is one of the largest indoor markets in Japan. Be sure to stop in when sightseeing in the city.

A market full of all different kinds of fresh foods

About 60 shops in a building 170 meters in length offer, freshly caught fish, produce, meat, dried foods, snacks, sweets, liquor and sundries. Visitors will find a wide array of Hachinohe specialties and souvenirs. Fish shops, especially, offer a variety of fish and shellfish caught the same morning. Visitors can enjoy fish in season, dried fish, freshly prepared sashimi and marine products unavailable elsewhere. Look around at everything, do some taste testing, and choose the products you like.

Restaurants proudly offer dishes made with that morning's catch

The huge market is home to two different restaurant areas, Aji Yokocho and Kuriya Stadium.

Five shops line Aji Yokocho, each with its own unique offerings. Noodles are a particular specialty, and be sure to try some Hachinohe Senbei soup.

Kuriya Stadium is an enormous restaurant that seats up to 600 customers. This is the place to enjoy fresh fish in sushi dishes. Chairs and tables are available for breaks, making it the perfect meet-up spot.
