The Kuroshio Fish Market is across from Marina City. Although it's technically in Wakayama City, one of the main roads into Marina City is actually from Kainan, so it's closer to the sites of Kainan.

The market is said to be one of the largest fish market restaurants in Japan. One of the highlights is the demonstration of cutting large maguro. They will cut the entire fish right before your eyes and after the "performance" you can actually buy parts of the maguro that you watched getting cut. The performances only occur at 11am, 12:30pm, and 3pm.

It's a lot of fun and free to watch. Aside from the show, you can buy a lot of fresh seafood at the restaurants inside or at the market to take home.
