Morning Market in front of Mutsu-Minato Station

 The "Morning Market in front of Mutsu-Minato Station” is held in front of Mutsuminato Station. Centered around the Hachinohe Municipal Fish & Vegetable Retail Market, it is busy every morning with market staff, tourists and many others. As well as freshly fried fish and side dishes, there are sushi shops that close at 7:00 AM, restaurants serving regional specialties with lines of people waiting to get in and local mothers chatting on the side of the road.
