Full description
Enjoy a guided tour through the famous Kuromon Market to learn more about its history and get to know the local products. You will not only learn about the market, but also get an insider’s perspective on the culture, local people, food, and the Osakan way of life.

During your market tour, you’ll try high-quality, seasonal fish, produce, and beef. Try Osaka’s most famous street foods and enjoy the colorful sights and sounds around the lively vendor stalls. The market has a special energy that welcomes both visitors and locals and there is something new to see and experience every month of the year.

After finishing in the main market area, go with your guide to the nearby Sennichimae Doguyasuji Shopping Street, Osaka’s so-called “Kitchen Town” to see cooking tools and equipment crucial to 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.
