This is a very busy morning market which you can see a lot of local food and artwork. Be here early in the morning for the freshest food of the season and also take time to walk into the shops to find the best lacquerware souvenir for yourself and your loved ones.

This is much smaller than Kanazawa, but worth experiencing. Locals are excited over local recognition from NHK TV series. Learn about lacquerware to appreciate this community.
