We were there on Sunday mid morning, so it was not very busy and many stores were closed. There were many food stalls that sold fresh shellfish and fish that you can choose and have them cooked to eat either standing in the street or some places and tables and chairs for customers. Not too impressive as mist places were... More

So much food everywhere. Interesting to see how Japanese people shop and sell. Saw a few men carving the tuna, grilling scallop, cooking beef etc so different with the market in australia. When we went there, the market was way too crowded, so we did not have the chance to eat inside the market, but we found an excellent tempura... More

From Namba station in Nankai line or Takashimaya department store of Namba, go through Namba Nankai street for 300 meter long and cross Sakai-suji Street, then you are at the entrance of Kuromon market and you can see a big crab on the ceiling. This market is famous for the Globefish, Fugu, light tasted and expensive white fish in Japan.... More

This market is packed with fresh produce including seafood, vegetables, fruits, beef, etc. There are also daily items stores, souvenirs stores and a resting area. It is always filled with tourists searching for food and locals buying ingredients for their meals, but the area is quite clean and easy to navigate even though it gets crowded and noisy at times....

I've had better tasting Japanese food in much better settings than this for comparable prices. Truly unpleasant atmosphere, surrounded by tourists who think they're getting a great deal. Don't enter the black gate.

We got there around 11am and it wasn't crowded, which made it easy to look at things and eat on the go. We felt it was more authentic at that time when we could see the locals shopping for food staples.

A traditional local wholesale market, very very crowd and lots of fish, all are pufferfishes, a lot !! Nothing much amazing, may go or may not go. There are place to eat, but no table for you, just stand to eat.
