Tuesday, October 18, 2016 Hakodate, Hokkaido
The Hakodate Morning Market was our last stop in Hokkaido. After this our tour group would be catching the bullet train to Honshu Island.
There was a huge selection of seafood, both dried and fresh, and seaweed-related products, as well as fruits and vegetables.
What was really cool was that the vendors would usually knock off a few dollars from the posted price. Even if they might do that for everybody, it still made me feel kinda special.
This guy in particular gave Sweetie some good deals.
I think this is squid stuffed with rice.
This was one of the packages that I busted open as soon as I came home. It was really good . . . soft and tasty.
I really wanted to try some grapes but just couldn't bring myself to spend that much on it.
I think this vendor gave Sweetie a 3/$something deal.
"Cheaper" grapes were here. I should've bought, yah.
I shoulda got some sliced melon too.
I think Sweetie woulda brought home some of this ikura and uni if it was more towards the ending part of our trip, but we were still only midway.
This says "soft toba". Wonder what that is.
This is where you could catch squid.
And they would prepare it for you to eat right away.
These scallops were $7 each.
Here is a map that our tour guide provided with interesting stores highlighted in pink for us. We only got to visit some of the stores in the bottom half before our time ran out. Boo hoo.
Marching for Science - I missed the Woman's March. I missed the Tax March. When I saw the March for Science notice on Saturday, I felt it was time to take a stand. Art was leery ...
