Kuromon Market has been playing an important role for thriving Osaka as the "Kitchen of the Nation" for a long time. Most shops in Kuromon Market has been there for decades and most of them are family owned businesses which makes it look different from the modern shopping malls. The place is famous for offering street foods for the people in Osaka.

Of course, with time, there are several things that were changed, but the food and the people who sells them always have the warm heart to serve their customers and that's why the place is loved by so many people. One of the reasons why we designed this tour was not only because we wanted people to see Kuromon Market, but also to create the opportunity to interact with the warm culture that's there.

Try Osaka's "must-eat" street food, Takoyaki at Kuromon Market

Have you heard of a Japanese snack called, "Takoyaki"? It's a small rounded ball snack made of wheat-flour based batter with a piece of octopus inside. After shaping it roundly with a mold, people put savory sauce and some bonito flakes on top. This Takoyaki is originally from Osaka and that's why we want you to try the best Takoyaki in this Osaka walking tour!

Have a taste of local favorite foods while walking through Kuromon Market and Dotonbori street

This tour will be an excellent option for you if you would like to try different kinds of Japanese food in one place! The Kuromon Market has a history of more than 100 years and has more than 130 shops and stalls. We're sure it'll be difficult for you to decide which food to try since there're too many options. But don't worry, we'll stop by and sample local favorites. We'll try fresh seafood, hot-pot dishes, and more.

Find unique Japanese kitchenware and tableware souvenirs to bring home

After sampling foods, we'll head to a street named Doguyasuji street. The street has contributed to "the Kitchen of the Nation" by offering various kitchenware, tableware and cooking equipment not only for individuals, but also for professionals. You'll find practical special souvenirs for your family and friends who enjoys cooking. After that, we will walk around Dotonbori street where we can enjoy more Osaka local foods!
