Kuromon Market

Smoky seafood grills, fragrant arrays of tulips, and a myriad of goods as colorful as your imagination: Osaka’s chief marketplace is a boiling cauldron of sights and smells. Kuromon Market boasts around 150 shops selling all things from culinary delights to functional items. It lures visitors in like a spider’s web. For over a century, it has boasted the epithet “Osaka’s Castle” for the variety of fresh produce it offers. Nowadays, it is famous for the cultural carnival it has on display, making the site a favorite among travelers.

Sampling is a delight at the market. You will find your appetite worked up even if you aren’t hungry. Help yourself with freshly-cooked burgers and “yakiniku” beef kebabs. If you are not into meat, pickled vegetables are excellent choices to snack on, while noodle and curry shops are prepared to take care of your needs. The entire market is a melting pot of local culture and tradition. As you stroll among stalls, raise your head every once in a while and take a look at the decorated roof. A patterned skylight offers fascinating views among Chinese lanterns and whimsical signs pointing to various eateries.

Last but not least, a visit to the hidden jewel of Kuromon Market, Yamaguchien Tea Shop, will spice up your culinary trip even more. This specialty tea shop has been around since 1937. It offers a much-deserved sensory feast with its aromatic teas and tea-flavored ice cream.
