Eating in Osaka’s Kuromon Market

One of my favorite things to do in a new city is to explore its local markets. It could be a beloved supermarket, where they still make food to-order, or a bustling market, where chaos and noise and aroma dominate. On my most recent trip to Japan, I spent a few days in Osaka, which I learned is a city obsessed with eating. Nowhere is this more evident than at the busy Kuromon Market, home to dozens of vendors, each shouting a lively hello and thank you (arigato gozaimasu!) to passersby. The great thing about this market is the sheer number of places to sit and eat. It was the first time I’ve ever had bluefin tuna for breakfast, and I can’t wait to have it again one day.
