Top choice market in Aomori

Cut out the middle man and head straight for the famed Aomori seafood market where piles of produce including scallops, codfish, apples, pickled vegetables and many other foods are laid out for restaurateurs to hand-pick. There are also a few counter restaurants selling ramen and sanshoku-don (rice topped with scallops, fish roe and sea-urchin roe). Cheap and ridiculously cheerful.
