If you come to Otaru, you will want to buy fresh seafood and seafood from Hokkaido and Otaru.
Probably the first person who visits Otaru for the first time Triangle Market strong> near Otaru Station and tourists who come to Otaru will always go to Sakaimachi Street Shopping Street strong> I think you will buy souvenirs, seafood and dried food at the seafood store.
It is too expensive to buy (ﾉ Д`)
There may be a few people who seemed like this.
That’s right! Shops for tourists are expensive.
Because it’s a tourist price!
Many tourists shop at expensive prices for tourists
Shops that open in the vicinity of tourist spots are targeted at tourists, so the price setting is high for tourists!
There are shops for tourists in places that are tourist destinations anywhere in the world, nowhere in the world, and the price setting is high everywhere.
Tourists can’t expect repeats, so they sell at a high price! I can’t understand the business.
It is not bad to shop at shops and markets for tourists, but if you come to Otaru, it is Otaru citizen price rather than worrying about price tags and shopping without worrying about price tags I want you to do cheap and fun shopping.
Shop cheap at a local store
So I recommend a market and a supermarket where locals go shopping.
The price is of course cheap because it is for the locals. It ’s really cheap strong>. Not only that, you can also get items that you don’t see in shops for tourists.
My push is
Otaru Citizen’s Kitchen, Minamitaru Market
Minami-taru market is a kitchen of Otaru citizens, and it is loved by locals, with face-to-face sales and reasonable prices, focusing on seasonal ingredients from Hokkaido as well as ingredients from Otaru. There are 29 stores now, and in addition to grocery stores such as fresh fish, vegetables, meat, handmade side dishes, etc. We are open as
You can also enjoy fresh sushi, ramen, and seafood bowls. If you are tired of shopping, take a break with freshly brewed coffee. There is also a rest area. (* Please eat the prepared meals and lunch boxes)
In addition, every month, there are also events where you can win a bit of a good one according to your shopping on special sales days.

Even after Otaru has become a tourist destination, Otaru’s market has many stores that line up only crabs for tourists, such as the triangular market. It is still “Otaru Citizen’s Kitchen”.
The rules, such as not making persistent calls in the market, are firmly adhered to, and it is easy to shop with an easy-to-see shop. The price is also set by locals, so you can enjoy shopping with a reasonable price.
Especially for seafood, it is clearly cheap!
There is no loss to look through.
The shops in the South Barrel market sell fresh items, vegetables and fruits, meat, side dishes, daily miscellaneous goods, florists, medicines, bread, etc., and the whole shopping street is a market. .
Why seafood is so fresh
Fresh fish landed at the fishing port in Otaru will be auctioned off at the market early in the morning, and will line up at the fresh fish store in Otaru in the morning. Therefore, all the products in the store are fresh.
Why seafood is so cheap
“Thin selling” has not changed since long ago. In order to keep many people happy with each price, the price will be reduced so that local Otaru customers come every day! It seems that this feeling has not changed.
Please see the store website at the end of the article. It is sold very cheaply. Even if you can’t go to Otaru, you can purchase it from the store’s website, so please take a look!
A market with a Showa atmosphere
▲ Tourists are also shopping for many local people.
▲ Although it is a market for local residents, it offers a full range of services for tourists, and fresh fish can be frozen and refrigerated at all fresh fish and seafood stores.
▲ Anyway, cheap! Just cheap! I come to shopping for fresh and cheap fresh fish from neighboring towns and Sapporo. A super-discount that is completely incomparable with shops for tourists!
In particular, “Takashima octopus foot boiled on the beach” can only be purchased in Otaru at this Minami barrel market or Shin-Nan barrel market.
Like me, no other octopus can be eaten anymore.
