Travelers who are interested in the lifestyle and culture of tourist attractions do not miss this market where a local fruit village(market) is adjacent. The must is tasting local fresh seafood & fruits and watching the first time of tuna slice at 11.00 hrs.

Not so much a fish market but more a seafood restaurant fashioned to look like a fish market. A fun experience to pick out your seafood to eat either fresh or grilled in the “public” seating area. Very tourist orientated with lots of souvenirs sold

Located just next to the Wakayama Marina, the Kuroshio Market is a market that sells a lot of seafood products. The main highlight here would be the tuna cutting demonstration, where a skilled guy would showcase the different parts of the tuna while cutting it up. The demonstration is all in Japanese though, so you would have to rely purely on visuals. Be sure to stand in front of the tuna cutting counter at least 10 minutes before the start of the demonstration if you wish to have a good view. The rest of the market is made up of stalls offering different types of seafood, as snacks and as meals. The products are rather pricey though, as fresh and tasty as they look.

In less than 2 hours from Osaka, we arrived by train and bus from JR Kainan Station. The 15 mins bus ride from Kainan Station was 380 yen. It was relatively easy to find the bus stop - just follow the blue line on the floor leading from the station exit to the bus stop! Alight at the Marina City bus stop - lots of people get off here so it's easy. You get onto the bus from the back door and pull a ticket from the machine. There is an electronic panel above the front door which will indicate your fare when you are getting off. If you do not have exact change, slot your 1000 yen note into the coin changing machine next to the driver and it will dispense change. Then put the fare into the coin slot. Easy as that! Everyone is very patient and will wait for you to complete this. Or you can change your money while the bus is moving if you don't want to hold people up. We watched the 11am tuna filleting show. Although in Japanese, it was nevertheless entertaining and educational. We then bought live seafood, which was not expensive, from the many stalls there and otoro sushi (pack of 8 pieces for 2000 yen) and headed for the outdoor BBQ area. To our surprise, they had staff there to turn on the gas BBQ grill on the tables, which came complete with plates and cutlery at no extra cost. Drinking water was also free from a dispenser. Once you are done, they clear up the table. The live clams (600 yen) were delicious, and so was the sea bream (500 yen each) and uni (sea urchin 1000yen). Needless to say, the otoro sushi was heavenly. We bought a bottle of cold sake to share at 700 yen. A seaside BBQ with fresh live seafood and sake with the sea breeze blowing and a view of the blue sea was simply heavenly. But if you can't be bothered to cook, you can always buy the cooked stuff including yakitori and rice bowls from the stalls there. I would highly recommend you visiting this fish market and eat the fresh seafood. I have been to other seafood markets like the one in Sydney and Auckland but nothing beats this one. You get a gas grill and service at no additional charge as a bonus!

Great fish market and good range of reasonably priced eating places. Supposed to be best outside Tokyo - not so sure but was very good.
