Dried fish market where the old port city of Busan remains intact

Dried Fish Wholesale Market (Dried Fish Market) is located right in front of Nampo Station on Busan Subway Line 1, and there is Jagalchi Market, Korea’s largest fish and shellfish market, within a 5-minute walk.

It is a wholesale market specializing in dried fish that represents Busan, including anchovies, dried fish, squid, octopus, seaweed, and kelp, and more than 200 stores are gathered. There are many dried kelp and seaweed sold here, but the quality is good and the thickness is thick, so it’s good to buy as a gift.

In addition, most of the stores in a row are Japanese-style buildings built in Japanese colonial era that are over 100 years old, and are often used as filming locations for dramas and movies. It is also known as the filming location of “Friend,” starring Jang Dong-gun, a big hit movie in Korea.
