You will not only learn about the market but also get aninsider’s’ perspectiveon the culture, local people, food, and the Osakan way of life.

With a total length around 600 meters, the Kuromon market specializes in the freshest and best quality meat, vegetables, eggs and other ingredients from around the country and abroad. It started off as a fisherman’s market but now includes a variety of other stores as well: you will find 39 fish stores, 10 Green grocery shops, 12 Butcher shops, 7 candy shops, and 24 restaurants.

During your market tour you will have a chance totry Osaka’s most famous street foods,enjoy the colorful sights and sounds, taste local specialities, high quality and seasonal fish, produce, and beef. The market has a special energy that welcomes both visitors and locals. There is something new to see and experience every month of the year.

After finishing in the main market area, follow our guide to nearby Sennichimae Doguyasuji, also known as Osaka’s “Kitchen town.” There you can see cooking tools and equipment crucial to Osaka’s chefs and restaurateurs. Every kind of Japanese kitchen item you could want can be found here: knives, bowls, takoyaki grills, neon signs, plastic food, utensils, appliances and much more. The plastic food is a special feature here. Called “Food samples”, this tradition originated in Japan more than 100 years ago when some entrepreneurial restaurateurs started to display wax, and later plastic, food dishes outside their shops to show diners what they can expect. Find your own perfect plastic sushi or other dish, as a unique souvenir of your trip to Osaka!
