Arrived quite late in the evening and half the stores were closing. Managed to get a glimpse of what was on. As it was past the closing hours, some stores started slaying their prices. Different cuts of beef, including wagu, and seafood was a plenty, with farm produce as well. Worth to buy here, not to mention that the food... More

Went there in the early morning for breakfast, normally shops open at 9am and if you want to avoid the crowded go earlier like me. There are many choices for food like seafood, fried food, beef and supermarket for fruit and vegetables. Whatever you want to eat you will find it there! Have to go a few times to try... More

The place is a 10 min walk from the bustling Dotombori street, to the east. I understand the Kuromon Ichiba Market (Black Gate Market) used to be called Emmeiji Market, because there was once a large temple called Emmeiji nearby. It later got its name from a black gate northeast of this temple. It is close to 600 meters long... More

if you like sushi and sashimi you should have a visit here. I went here before I went to the airport so i didn't spend much time. But I could still find cheap toro sushi and urchin sashimi before I went home :)

Just beside Nipponbashi Station, a good starting point on your way to the Namba / Dotombori Area. Kuromon Ichiba is an Osaka Market where lots of fresh seafoods - big clams, tuna, scallops, octopus and even fugu are sold grilled or as sushi. You could also get a taste of Kobe beef cooked over teppan & sold by the cubes.... More

One of the freshest place for raw fishes (especially fatty tuna - maguro, chutoro, ohtoro) and other seafood (including sea urchins, large-sizes scallops, lobsters and abalone) in Osaka. We planned to drop by for breakfast for only one day but ended up returning twice more. Also, do remember to try out the white strawberries which are really sweet! Even if... More

A covered market street of about 500meters long. A very short walking distance from Nipponbashi station. Concept is similar to Nishiki market of Kyoto but more organized and broader walkway. Very tourist friendly as they caters for tourists too with free official guide map in various languages. There is free WiFi somewhere mid section of the market. Able to find... More
