In the city of kuidaore, meaning “to ruin oneself by food,” you know the Osakans mean business when it comes to serving up delicious meals. So when we say Kuromon Ichiba Market is known as “Osaka’s Kitchen,” the name comes with a certain gravitas. And it’s a reputation the market lives up to, with 39 fishmongers, 10 grocery shops, 12 butchers, 7 candy shops, and 24 restaurants. Boasting all types of wild seafood, a rainbow of pickle varieties, and scrumptious street food offerings, Kuromon Market is the go-to place for foodies, chefs, and restaurateurs alike! On this Osaka Kuromon Market Tour, you’ll find yourself immersed in the smells, sights, and flavors of Osaka. After your cravings for takoyaki and Osaka street food is satiated at the Kuromon Market, kickstart your digestion by taking a little walk over to Osaka’s “Kitchen Town,” Sennichimae Doguyasuji, where you can admire the local craftsmanship of razor-sharp cooking knives, gorgeous Japanese ceramics and lacquerware, and even the lifelike Japanese shokuhin sanpuru, or “food samples.” You might have seen these intricate plastic Japanese food samples in restaurant display cases and in department stores, but you probably didn’t know that you can buy them for yourself! Take home a foodie souvenir to remember your Osaka food tour by, or pick up something at the Kuromon Market to give to friends or family back home!
