Come here in the afternoon, and you can buy cheap raw fish which is very fresh and delicious. The fruit here is much cheaper than that in the department store. Also, there is a store which sells tons of Japanese cookies and crackers at low prices. If you have enough time, please come and enjoy the local food.

You can find fresh fruits especially a whole selection of strawberries, dried seafood, cooked food, fresh sashimi, clothes and sundries. There is one or two small supermarkets too. Every store owner is so friendly and full of smiles. Too many strawberries to choose from? Just ask the friendly shop assistant and they will give friendly suggestions! My only advise is... More

I love visiting markets whenever I travel. Comparing Kyoto's Nishiki Market and Osaka's Kuromon Ichiba, I prefer the latter. This place is really a market the locals go for their fresh produces. It is rather easy to get here by the subway, just take to Nipphonbashi station and walk out of exit 10, turn left, when facing the street; you... More

Fresh quality food at reasonable prices! There are also stores selling household ware and you get to see and feel the vibe of the people living in the neighbourhood.

I went twice during my 2 days in Osaka. My advise is to go early in the morning, say around 8-9am before the crowd build up. My main objective was to attack all the fresh seafood available. I had fresh oyster by the road at 700Yen each, barbeque octopus stuffed with quail egg, and grilled super huge scallops... for appetizer.... More

Awesome food, plenty of sashimi, fruits, veges, seafood, pickles, desserts and plenty of stuff I didn't know what it was. Best to go on an empty stomach!

Okay, I am giving this a 5/5 because the place is mindblowing! Stores selling wares, fruits, fresh fish and confectionary. I found 1 shop selling beautiful wagashi and strawberry daifuku. They're made fresh daily without preservatives so you have to finish them on the same day. The daifuku was so good that I went back the next morning to buy... More

This 600-meter long covered market is known as Osaka's Kitchen and has been around for at least 100 years. It's similar to Nishiki Market in Kyoto and has more than 150 stalls with fresh meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, etc. There are also places to eats fresh sashimi, etc. Taking a stroll through the market is a wonderful way to experience...

Kuromon Ichiba is the place where locals go for their fresh seafoods, fruits and vegetable. It's not actually a big market like Kyoto's Nishiki Market but I fell in love with this place. To get there, take subway Nipphonbashi station exit 10. Walk to your left when facing the street. Kuromon Ichiba is on your left. We had sashimi, melt... More

A fun place to visit for an hour or so. Many fruit and vegie shops, so a good place to buy some lovely Japanese fruits. Recommended.
