Kuromon Ichiba Market

Kuromon Ichiba Market has been around for more than 190 years. Its’ history and tradition has continued to thrive and is a very popular area known by locals as "Gastronome" and "Osaka’s Kitchen." All kinds of fresh food items are available at this market, fully satisfying the hunger of the people of Naniwa (Naniwa is the old name for this area). Located on the south side of Chuo Ward, Osaka City, Kuromon Ichiba is 580 meters long, and is easily accessed by a 2-minute walk from the subway Nipponbashi Station. It is a very lively market with lots of human interaction, and is packed with approximately 150 shops of mainly fish, meat and vegetables. In 2015 the market was visited by an average of 23,000 people a day, but that figure is most probably higher now. One reason for the market’s popularity is that many stalls will prepare, cook and serve their food to you right on the spot.
