Kuromon Market, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • It's a big and great market and perfect especially for those who love seafoods. It also has a lot of variety of food stalls and stores and so many tourists. I love this place, it's a clean market and very near to subway stations.

  • Fresh seafood stalls. Fruits and dried seafood. Very busy from morning to late afternoon. Nice to spend some time here if you are in Osaka.

  • Lotsa seafood! If you like grilled scallops lobster king crab and huge assortment of sashimi, this place is for you. It can get crowded on weekends. Note opening hours on different days. Closes by 6pm so good to plan a visit there for brunch or lunch time to get fresh finds.

  • It’s originally a neighborhood market, slowly it became famous tourist must visit market. They have good options of fresh seafood, but overpriced! Because of tourist. If you’re traveling a bunch of people, is good to share those king crab, is kinda cheap after divided sum. But if you’re alone, is good for you to check-in.

  • Some sushi and food stalls. Really crowded on a Saturday morning as this seems to be a place popular with tourist. Wouldn't say the food is of highest quality though.
