It’s just a market and not overly special at that. Food is extremely overpriced. Quite disappointed.

Kuromon market is fun to visit but beware! Prices are very expensive as they target tourists. One small piece of beef stick is 1000yen!! Sushi are expensive too. The photo i upload - kobe beef plate - it was 2200yen.

Had the freshest otoro sashimi (3,000 yen) at a corner store which was so much better than those served in restaurants. A salmon and otoro rice bowl cost 1,800 yen, while the uni (bought from other stores) cost 1,500 yen. I will definitely come back...More

Open 10 am until 6pm, and Sunday is closed ( google said that... next time try writing in google) or download the Lonely Planet app. Is free and is amazing for travel in Japan.
