  • We came across this by accident when walking to Osaka castle. It was great though! Very busy and lots going on and good to see all the locals shopping there. Great if you love people watching. We foun...  more »

  • This time I visited for the first time. I felt overwhelmingly more overseas tourists went on say the locals in Osaka kitchen preconceived, smacks of the tourist destination. I felt it as pottery sold in-store price is high.

  • Pretty cool place for a market with fresh seafood, tempura, fruits, sushi and other food related items. Unique since you can pick your food raw and they cook it in front of you on charcoal / gas grills. Highly recommend the takoyaki if you see it since it tastes great and it's cheaper compared to places in Dontonbori Street.
  • Delicious Juicy Toro & Kobe Beef! Location: 15-20 minute walk from Namba station. 5 minute walk from Nipponbashi station. Food: Toro and Kobe beef are a must eat when you are here! Plenty of fresh seafood and fruits to eat as well! Key Takeaway: If you don't mind standing and eating juicy pieces of toro, kobe beef, seafood and fruits then this is a highly recommended place!

  • So nice of the market both seafoods n grocery shoppings… the oysters n sea urchin of 西川 no good than before, but the hongkonger still die heart queue outside. A small shop just two shops next called 川崎 very nice, the oysters very fat n creamy.…Worthy to try…
  • Great selection of otoro and Wagyu. Fresh and delish
  • Lots to see, but filled with tourists...some of the more busy stalls are definitely a few USD more expensive than another stall selling the same food/goods, so shop around! We love uni, but don't be tempted to buy the cut open ones that have been sitting out. Male sure you get a fresh one, and pay the extra 100 or 200 for a large one, and not the small! The better the display and packaging, you will be paying a premium for so watch out! Must try would be the toro tuna (extra fatty!), tuna jaw. Try some of the expensive fruit, like golden peaches, but rather than buying a pack, just buy one and ask them to cut it up to eat one the spot! I would go elsewhere for the wagyu beef...
