The Kuromon Market is treat like Osaka people's kitchen. You could find lots of cheap seafood and special local foods. 黑門市場被喻為大阪人的廚房 在這邊可以找到許多新鮮的海鮮以及當地食物 1. 黑門中川: Very large supermarket which you find fresh seafood and fruits. 非常大的超市,可以找到許多海鮮以及水果等等 2. 完善食肉店:Nice and fresh beef, the Japanese Wagyu beef, they could cook for you. 上等牛以及和牛就在你面前烹煮,口水直流呢! 3. よしや:Very cheap candy store, the price is from $100~$250...

Been here twice. Both times, we ate sashimi and unagi from a big seafood shop (with a lot of Hk tourists). Not exactly cheap, but it's always nice to eat right at the market, yes? We bought some green tea from a tea specialty shop and there are some shops to buy green tea kit kats and Japanese biscuits. Bought... More

I have been through open air food markets in several parts of the world, but Kuromon Ichiba is a bit different. It is not exactly open air as the offerings on display are almost all attached to shops. That said, it is fun to see all the foods on display that will end up being served in Osaka restaurants. Even... More

We had the best kobe beef here and for a really good price! They cook it on the spot for you when you order and it is a very small spot. We've had kobe beef in tokyo for $200USD and it was not nearly as good as the kobe beef in this market. This is a MUST TRY.

We did enjoy our time at the markets - a must try is the Kobe Beef - it was definitely the best steak in the world. however for a true fish market experience do make sure you get to the Tokyo fish Markets ..

Think fresh savoury hotate, sweet and juicy snow crabs, delicious salmon sashimi, grilled mackerel, sashimi and more sashimi.... You get to pick the freshest sashimi off the shelves and they will sliced it for you on the spot. Reasonable prices for good quality sashimi. Then end your meal with tender and chewy strawberry mochi. Strawberry mochis are a MUST. The... More

If you are visiting Osaka, I would highly recommend you visit Kuromon Ichiba – a local market / street that sells loads of local delicacy from sushi to sashimi to snacks, biscuits, mocha, grapes, strawberries and the list goes on and on. The food and fruits here is amazingly fresh and delicious! I spent 2-3 hours just eating, enjoying the... More

Kuromon Ichiba is not your typical touristy market, it's an bustling wet and dry market that residents visit to do their daily grocery shopping. The market runs perpendicular from the main street and branches off into short intersections along the way. You'll find stalls and shops selling apparels, crockery, dinnerware, small home appliances, fresh produce, cooking goods and little pockets... More
