When you visit Hokkaido and you are a seafood lovers, this place at Otaru is must-be in your list. The market include dine in restaurant just located besides Otaru train station.
There is the most memorable place for real seafood, its like a clean wet market with live seafood like lobster, Alaska crab etc but provide dine-in and various menu come with rice, it’s always rush hours in here, no matter Japanese or tourists.
I choose big prawn, sashimi, unagi, some fish. And all taste so fresh !
Check the opening and closing time.

No trip to Hokkaido would be complete without sampling Japan’s most prized resource – allergies permitting. A stone’s throw from Otaru stations, the Sansaku market presents a terrifically seductive dance of fresh, gorgeously prepared seafood and shellfish, tucked in one of Hokkaido’s most beloved neighbourhoods – Otaru.
Eneko Shop offers the kind of food you have to work for. It’s virtually impossible to avoid a queue, and you’re likely to be elbow-to-elbow with strangers. Stunning seafood dishes like octopus are profound in their simplicity, bringing out clean, startlingly robust flavors. Make sure you have the more ambitious dishes like the Seafood rice bowl with Hokkaido specialty, ikura (salmon roe) for a total experience which is dizzying and unforgettable. Everything is exceptional. It’ll leave seafood enthusiasts bragging for weeks.
You’d be advised to come with an appetite. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

We bought quite a bit of dried seafood to use for soups here. We tried the fruits here as well and they were absolutely amazing.

Please try!!

To get to this Fish Market you get a JR Train from Sapporo station to Otaru. Then it's a 5 minute walk from the station. You can miss the entrance as it looks like a normal doorway.
All seafood here is on show in tanks especially the crabs, you can choose how big you would like. There are quite a few small shops where you can have your meal ,you just need to put your name down on a list and wait to be called.
They will cook what you have chosen and bring it to you. You can choose from the menu also If you want something more. We had snow crabs boiled and cooked, herring, oysters, sashimi.
All food is delicious and enjoyable. You can take your time as the sellers/ owners do not rush you as they like you to spend time and relax.

Its about 500m walk from the Otaru Canal cruise. All the restaurants charges almost the same price so just walk in whenever you like it. Seafood is fresh so don't leave without eating anything. English menu is available. The entire Sankaku Market is less than 30m ~ 50m.

Small alley with a couple of shop. We saw the first shop that has many king crab and decided to try. The over 2kg it king crab coat about $28000 yen. Costly but it’s the experience. We had the half the crab grilled and half in hot pot. The grilled one is amazingly good!

We went there every day for breakfast ! Fresh seafood !!!!! so amazingly yummy and delicious. You might want to come early to get best delicacy. Often there is a small line as all locals come here to eat the best food!

When we first followed Google Maps directions to this market, we walked past without realising the slanted door opens up to a row of seafood stalls and also a 3-unit wide dining place with fresh seafood. This market offers quite a wide range of seafood, incl fishes we never saw before and humongous crabs. Worth visiting

The market opens at 7am. It is located just next to the train station. A flight of stairs lead up the the entrance. We decided to have some fresh seafood before our hotel breakfast. We choose an eatery with an accompanying store that sell live seafood.
