Overview

50 minutes from Kansai International Airport (Osaka) by car. The largest number of tuna cutting shows in Japan. The fattiest part of tuna (Otoro) sushi is must-eat in this market. It's a kind of tourist seafood market. At the seaside BBQ area, you can grill & eat all the seafood purchased in Kuroshio Market. Some of the seafood can be prepared as Sashimi or steamed/boiled, free of charge.

Even though it is advertised as a fish market, not really. There are raw fish and cooked food, but mostly processed food. In other words, things you can probably buy at the local supermarkets. The tuna fish show was so-so. While it was done well...More

If you love ume (pickled plum), then you've come to the right place. This is their specialty. There were a dozen samples to taste and satisfy your pallet. Tax-free zone, if you spend at least 5300 yen in consumables or non-consumables, you can request for...More

This is more a shopping arcade for tourists than a real, working market. That's not to say it's bad, it's just what it is. The tuna cutting demonstration is amazing to watch. Buying food and barbecuing it right there is a cool thing to do.
