Kushiro’s biggest, most historic market

Opened in 1954, this market is one of Hokkaido’s top three markets along with Hakodate’s Morning Market and Sapporo’s Nijo Market.

Kushiro Washo Ichiba MarketThis is the kitchen of the people of Kushiro, where about 60 shops offer fresh crab, salted dried fish, fruits and vegetables, meat, delicacies, sweets, and more. The name Kushiro Washo Market comes from the Japanese word “wasshoi,” an enthusiastic cheer, and also incorporates the concept of friendly and cooperative selling.
