With the aim of promoting Okinawa’s seafood, Tomari-Iyumachi was built here in May 2005 (inside Tomari Fishing Port
in Minato-machi, Naha City). Here, in addition to the shops of Okinawa Fisheries Cooperative Association’s 23 fishery
product wholesalers and tuna and mozuku seaweed specialty shops, they’ve built a fish carving and processing room
where tourists can watch the process through a glass window. The volume of landing is an average of 20 tons a day.
On busy days, it can reach 50 tons. Of the fish landed, approximately 70% are tuna. Each shop sells fresh seafood
landed that day and the market is bustling with many locals and tourists.
