Our family loved this market. It was clean, sellers were pretty friendly, obviously they cater to tourists with their signage and English labels. Loved that t there is an area with free wifi, tables and vending machine where you can sit and eat :) Do not miss the TORO right beside another "not to miss" Kobe beef. Perfect pair for... More

This market shouldn't be missed when you go to Osaka. There are lotssss of food and dry goods to choose from. But what I like most about this market is the Wagyu/Kobe vendor! In my country, you need atleast Php3000 to eat a Wagyu Steak. In Kuromon, it's only 1200Yen per serving. It's a small store where you can wait... More

Kuromon Market is famous as Japanese old fish market, especially you can buy and taste "Fugu", Globe Fish...of course without poison. And so nice atmosphere as old Japanese common life.

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
