kuromon market reviews

Japanese intanet reviews of Kuromon Market include the following

  • It’s fun to look around.
  • It is good to eat and walk around.
  • There are many expensive stores for tourists.
  • More and more expensive stores are opened though they used to be cheap.

Recently, there is an article on the Japanese Internet that says that there is a rip-off of foreign tourists at Kuromon Market.
The article said that many stores charge reasonable prices, but some stores charge much higher prices. I was not surprised to read this.
When I visited the market in July 2023, there was one restaurant that charged 8,000 yen for sea urchin.

If you are shopping at Kuromon Market, I suggest you compare prices with other stores before you buy.
In my opinion, the food at Kuromon Market is good quality and tasty. The prices in many stores are a bit high for tourists.
However, the variety of things to eat at one time makes Kuromon Market a good place for tourists.

A nice restaurant where you can choose crabs in the store and have them grilled on the spot.
There are also a variety of kaisen-don (seafood bowls).
I recommend the Kaisen-don here for its good price.

In the Kuromon Market, where most of the food is fresh, this restaurant is a little unusual in that it serves cooked side dishes.
We recommend the delicious oden that continues to simmer in the store.
Tourists are also crazy about the photo-worthy oden.
