Arrived there around 8am and lots of stalls are still open. Bought freshly cut sashimi from the fish stalls and eat on the bench right outside the market as breakfast. Seems peach is in season and no more white strawberries were available. Bought some normal strawberries, not really sweet but much fresher than supermarkets'.

Reachable by Imamiyaebisu and Daikokucho Subway Stations depending on which line you wish to travel. The latter goes to Umeda Station. This market is less tourist orientated and therefore less busy.But that is not to say the market has less to sell.Far from it all the sea food stalls are there selling fresh fish, eels, oysters, sea urchins, scallops. Retail sale is welcomed but the mainstream is wholesale. There is a very nice stall selling freshly grilled eel rice unagi just outside the front entrance to this market.Be there at 9 when the grilled eels come out. For seafood you have to go early. Dry food stores selling dried shrimps, squids and sea grass, kelps etc are also there. I must mention the fruit stores selling all sorts of seasonal fruits in this market at great discount to say department stores such as Daimaru. We visited in Sept so peaches, muscat grapes and 20th Century pears are in abundance. Stores selling vegetables are there too. Japanese sweet potatoes and fresh asparagus, lotus stems,Edamame Japanese fresh soy beans , all sorts of mushrooms including my favourite Matsutake are on sale. Just looking at them and the way they are displayed really warm your heart. Give Kuromon Market a miss if you have been there before.

A very interesting morning stroll through the fish market - the variety of the fare for sale (seafood but also seaweed and vegetables) is astounding. As most things in Japan, the place is immaculately clean and well-organized. However, unlike other fish markets in Tokyo, Osaka etc this is not a tourist destination - one is spared the embarrassment as one of the gawking hordes. I did feel self-conscious as I snapped a few photos among the hard-working people, just as I felt sorry for the live fish (see attached puffer photo), turtles and other water creatures for sale. The animal cruelty strictures have not yet migrated to Asia, even to ostensibly civilized countries such as Japan where one regularly sees live de-shelled turtles as they move in their packages for sale in supermarkets.

The nearest station is Daikoku-cho station and it is located five-minute walk away from this station. The market was dim and the atmosphere was not sophisticated. Furthermore, the smell of fish was strong. This place could be an option to visit if you have time.

I came late so a large number of shops has closed for the day. The few shops that was open cater for the wholesale market. I went to ODA a market in the next building and I find the prices that is quite attractive for retail buyers.

Good place to visit if you love seafood. Prices are reasonable. There are some shops that sell good quality sushi and sashimi. Hint is you should visit early in the morning about 11am onwards. Any time after that it is really crowded and you will need to wait longer for food.

While most tourists will go to Kuromon Ichiba Market, this is a less well known wholesale market for fishes, meats & fruits in Osaka but I like it much better where you can see more local buyers & real actions. However, this market doesn’t have that many dining outlets/restaurants as Kuromon but I don’t think it matters since 10 minutes walk from here there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

This busy area goes on and on and is very interesting to walk through even if you're not on a shopping mission. It's very close to a lot of other touristy areas so it's easily accessible.

An interesting walk through the market with eateries on the outer side of the market.

Fresh seafood and produce available. The fruits and vegetables are excellent. And in some shops, the seafood can be consumed on the spot.
