Wajima Morning Market 輪島朝市

The Wajima morning (fish) market in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture is a popular tourist destination. Held on the main shopping street the market opens at 8 a.m. and finishes by noon. Of course, as the saying goes, hayaoki wa san mon no toku 早起きは三文の徳 (“The early bird catches the worm”), so to get the freshest fish you have to arrive early. Not as widely known though is that aside from main market is a smaller fish market held for the locales in the precincts of a shrine.
