This shopping center is near the Yaizu Interchange of Tomei Highway.
In a big site about 8,000sq meter they sell many kinds of fish. Also there is a Big restaurant with 1,200 seats i available for lunch and dinner.
Buying fish at this place is expensive ...A whole crab..130 dollars????uhmmmmm
This is the view inside the center.....rows and rows of all kind of fish from yaizu...
Its actually fun to walk around, and see what they sell but it does get crowded when the tour buses comes on weekend.......
Unique Suggestions: Just buy in any local place in town...

During YAIZU ARA MATSURI there is a small sumo tournament, not has grand as the real thing but just as fun.
Sumo has been an entertainment in Japan for more than 1,300 years. The first written record of Sumo as historical evidence was found on Nihon Shoki.
On 22 July, 642, Kogyoku Emperor commanded his soldiers to perform Sumo to entertain the guests from Kudara, one of the old countries in present Korea.
There is, however, another written record of Sumo prior to the above.
In 469, Yuryaku Emperor commanded his ladies of the court to strip themselves, put on tohsagi (one kind of fundoshi) and perform Sumo.
This was done to embarrass an expert in carpentry named Inabe-no-mane who had said,"I will not chip the edge of a hatchet even if I use it on a stone." He missed his aim at the sight of female Sumo and was almost killed because of his boast.
Even though this is the first word of Sumo written in the literature, most of the Sumo scholars ignore this as the first written record of Sumo.
In 728, Shomu Emperor issued a draft call for Sumo tournament, and 6 years later, on 7 July, 734, Sumai-no-sechie, the first national Sumo tournament was held.
Since Sumo became an imperial ritual it has been played generally as a festival all over Japan.
but nowadays Sumo is played as a sport.With tournament played in Tokyo and Nagoya
