Morning Market (Shiku no Ichi)
The "Shi-ku no Ichi" (4-9 Market) is open on days containing a "4" or "9" and runs next to Omachi Elementary school and adjacent to the market held on days containing "2" and "7" ("Nishichi no Ichi"). This morning market first began in August 1920, and originally ran from New Sugamachi to Sugamachi (presently Nakamachi 2-chome)..
Although the market disappeared briefly, it was restarted at its present place in 1924, where it runs today.
The site of the market, Omachi 4 and 5 chome, is known throughout town as a "gangi" street, or a street with covered walkways to protect pedestrians from snow.
The "gangi" eaves extend from each home and connect to make a passageway for walkers during times of deep snow. "Gangi" eaves were born of the warm hearts of the residents here, and can only be seen in "snow country."
During the market, stalls featuring fresh vegetables and fruits are lined up along the covered streets.
