Kuromon Market - Review

This market has been around for 170 years, preserving Osaka's traditions in a way few other places can. While they do sell apparel, electronics and other paraphernalia, the vendors at this market are most famous for their food. With 200 vendors (mostly mom-and-pop style) over 600 metres, this is the best place to be introduced to Osaka cuisine. :

  • Check out the fresh produce, from the exorbitantly expensive to the budget friendly, all fresh and bright.
  • Have some takoyaki, Grilled scallops served soy sauce and butter, sushi and sashimi, snacks from the oden stall.
  • Buys some meat off the meat stalls.
  • Assorted seafood like crab, prawns, unagi, tuna, kaisen-don and baby octopus.

Kuromon Market, Osaka Reviews

  • Walking around and trying all the food at Kuromon market was definitely the highlight of my time in Osaka! All the seafood is super fresh, and there's also a ton of sweets and drinks for those who aren't into seafood. Like other street markets in Japan, there are usually places to sit down and eat the food you just bought, or at the very least stand comfortably and eat. Pricing is definitely not cheap, but it's super reasonable for the quality of food that you're getting. The scallops were super tender ($5 each) and the fresh sushi was some of the best I've ever had ($13). Would highly recommend coming here early on an empty stomach and eating as much as you can!

  • Fresh food, a lot of tempting choices! Go for lunch or afternoon snack as everything closes around 5pm. If you can`t find seats to eat the food you buy, head over to the information centre where there is a designated eating area open to all, no matter what stall uou buy food from. They have deep fried puffer fish and organic coffee both of which are delicious.

  • So lucky to be staying minutes away from this great marketplace, constantly crowded so you need some patience navigating the crowds. Nice to be able to pick out your food and have the vendors cook it for you on the spot.

  • A nice market to take a look and have some local Osaka snacks. The food was pretty fresh and just a way down the market, we ate quite a few “must-eats” of Osaka. It’s a rather relaxing walk. We visited on a Sunday, and the crowd was quite alright. In the pictures was a beef skewer and Kani from the last shop of the market. It was tasty.

  • Nice place for some fresh sushi. easy to walk around as it's one long straight filled with stores and lots of sushi all around. Also small gift shops.
