The price for food here is amazing compared to the Namba area which is just 10 minutes walk away. If you come here a little bit later in a day, it's easier to eat because there's not a lot of Japanese to the market anymore. Sellers will start selling their raw sashimi and everything. There's a huge stall with sashimi... More

I reached there in the afternoon on Sunday and most shop already closed but luckily supermarket and some vendors selling sashimi, bento set, skewered abolone are still opened. Too bad I just have my lunch so I didn't try the food. I bought a big pack of individual packed scallops at 3000 yen for souvenir. It is near to Nihonbashi... More

You should come here to shop and eat sushi, sashimi, and other food stuff. I find the quality is quite good and the price is competitive. The market closes at around six. Therefore, don't come late. Tip: It is very accessible from the subway and the Namba area on foot after shopping.

One can miss anything in Osaka but Kuromon Ichiba! Here, you find cheap and fresh seafood of all sorts. From uni (sea urchin), fugu (puffer fish), snow crab to dried scallops and groceries. From Osaka Station, just follow the path to leading to Nishikibashi Station. It is just round the corner once you reach ground level. Best to settle your... More

Lovely place to spend the day buying fresh fruit and have a meal of fresh sashimi. They even have rest stops where you can take a seat, or use the bathroom facilities, and there's free wifi at these rest stops too!

Yes, the market is small. Yes, it is somewhat hard to find. And yes, it's a very ordinary market for a local Osaka resident. With all this being said, anyone who loves food must go!!! Dotonburi has a ton of great food and restaurants, but if you want to get some really good food, go to Kuromon Ichiba market. They... More

If you enter the market from Sennichimae Dori side, slowly walks to straight ahead. On the way you get to see and experience the most authentic Japanese market with the fresh fish, meat, produce and many other products. Approixmately after 5 minutes of slow walk, towards the end of the main walk through (you can see the place getting less... More

I visted Kuromon Ichiba with my family in November 2013. Plenty of fresh food, fruits & vegetables. Sashimi prices are relatively cheaper then restaurants. We ate a whole big Hokkaido crab for JPY3,800. It is much cheaper to eat Hokkaido crab in the market then at Dotombori. There are many types of food at this market. You buy & eat... More

It's just a stone throw away from our hotel, hotel hillarys. On the way to Nihonbashi station, we walked through this local market. It caters for both local and tourists.
