Kuromon Market Reviews
Nice local dishes but in street food manner, most are freshly baked seafood with affordable price. People there are kind and friendly to foreigners, most of them speak easy English & Mandarin... more »
Kuromon market is a series of streets and alleys filled with vendors for anything you can think of - fruit, vegetables, pickles, eggs, chicken, wagyu beef and of course, seafood. We went here early... more »
Lots of tourist and lots of tourist traps. Some things are really expensive like a medium sea urchin is 3000 yen. But the food is fresh and tasty. The fried crab stick is delicious. The curry rice is so good. The soft served melon is so good! The fruits are really fragrant and sweet but pricey.
Super busy market. Lots of fun stuff to look at and seafood/fresh fruit/confections to eat on the spot. Seemed to be particularly touristy out of all the open air markets we saw in Japan. Definitely compare prices too - we got an egg stuffed octopus for 150yen when other shops were selling the same for 400-600yen.
