Kuromon Market, Osaka Reviews

  • Great place for Japanese street food. Has many types of shops selling fruits, Kobe beef to fresh seafood. The grilled scallops was extremely good. But things are not cheap here compared to the restaurants. 😊

  • Great market in the heart of Osaka japan. Lines of stall selling everything Japanese. Sushi, Sashimi, Oden, Fresh Fruits, Grilled Seafood, handicrafts and kitchen equipment. Quality on offer is fresh and decent value. You could head of specific specialized places around the City but this sure is a convenient all in one place for food. Great market to munch on food as you walk along. This place get busy from 10am onwards so be ready for a crowd of local tourist and tourist from all over the world. Highly recommended to check this market out since it’s in the heart of the city anyways.

  • This is an excellent Market that has everything from Kobe beef to fresh seafood cook anyway you want. The selections is very Y in huge. It is truly a food Paradise for the foodie. Go there early in the morning and eat your way throughout the day.

  • I found the market interesting but not as good as other in Japan. There were some interesting stalls that you can sample seafood such as scallops, crabs and sea urchin. Sea urchin was unique but expensive. I did enjoy the tuna though. There was one stall that only sold tuna and priced reasonably. I tried a couple of different cuts from low marbling to very high. Fresh and nice. Next I tried the oden, which is more like a boiled tofu etc in broth. The one I chose was a tofu packet filled with mushroom and cabbage. I really enjoyed that. Also tried the crab shell filled with cheese sauce... I didn't enjoy it and felt it was more so to sell to tourists. Most likely so that they can take a photo of eating something out of a crab shell. Very gimmicky and I suggest you skip it.

  • A famous market with lots of visitors from other countries. It us truly a stunning places with lots of fresh food and fruit. Must try.
