Kure Taisho-machi Market

Nakatosa Town

The shooting season

This produce market has served as the local people's kitchen since the early 1900s. After a great fire around the market in 1915, the town received a reimbursement for reconstruction from the Taisho Emperor and out of gratitude, the town's people renamed the markets from 'Jizou-machi Market' to 'Taisho-machi Market'. The store fronts, packed with freshly-caught fish, seasonal vegetables and handmade specialties along with the vitality of the shop-owners' touts, attracts visitors from near and far.
In February 2011, Nakatosa became the first fishing town in Japan to be named a National Cultural Asset for Important Cultural Landscape.
