The Kushiro Washo Market (Has, Kushiro Washō Ichiba) is a market located just a short walk from Kushiro Station. It is one of the three famous markets of Hokkaido alongside Sapporo's Nijo Market and Hakodate's Morning Market.

Stalls in this indoor market sell fresh and processed seafood, meat and vegetables as well as souvenirs. The main attraction for many visitors is "Kattedon", a personalizable seafood donburi: after purchasing a bowl of rice, you add small portions of seafood of your choice on top of the rice. Seasonal seafood like crabs can also be cooked by some vendors and eaten in the market.
