Maizuru Seafood Market
Grab a bicycle at the Maizuru train station and ride an easy 20 minutes to the Maizuru Port fish markets—a must-visit for seafood lovers. Here, the catches literally come to you. Chat up the friendly folks at the market, shop around, and even touch some of the freshest live lobsters, clams, and Matsuba snow crabs around. Every winter, Maizuru fishermen brave the unruly elements to seek out Matsuba crabs, a coveted delicacy from the frigid waters of the nearby Sea of Japan. Once you pick out your seafood of choice, you can ask for it to be cooked for you on the spot. Or, if you prefer, pick up some succulent, pre-made sushi.
