Kuromon Market is the kitchen of Osaka. Most of the market staff are Japanese. Also, the variety of foodstuffs is numerous! Japanese people feel a language barrier, and I will solve that problem. When I have been to foreign countries, I have not been able to eat what I wanted to eat because of the language barrier. Traveling should be fun first and foremost. I will also guide you through the wonderful culture of Kuromon Market with its stories. Have the best 3 hours with me!

Kuromon Market

Kuromon Market, known as "Osaka's Kitchen," is a bustling marketplace with over 150 shops, perfect for food lovers. As a private tour guide in Japan, I provide unforgettable experiences at Kuromon Market, highlighting its unique charm and culinary delights.

Kuromon Market offers a culinary paradise where you can enjoy fresh seafood such as sushi, sashimi, grilled scallops, octopus, and delicacies like uni (sea urchin) and ikura (salmon roe); sample the finest wagyu beef with its marbled texture and rich flavor, available in bite-sized portions; try the popular street food takoyaki, savory balls made with diced octopus, topped with sauce, mayonnaise, and bonito flakes; savor oden, a comforting dish with boiled eggs, daikon radish, konjac, and fish cakes stewed in a soy-flavored broth; indulge in Japanese sweets like mochi (rice cakes), taiyaki (fish-shaped cakes with red bean paste), and dorayaki (pancakes with sweet bean paste); and taste high-quality, seasonal fruits like strawberries, melons, and peaches, beautifully presented and sweet.

Osaka Tour Reviews

A lot of fun!

Kazu was very accommodating and patient as I amended plans several times due to changes with travel plans. He was quick to adapt and keen to ensure that the tour was tailored to my specific interest. As a solo traveler it is important that you can get along with your guide as it is just you and them- and Kazu made sure to put me at ease and that I had a fun and interesting time!

Tawana T.

Dear Tawana, Thank you very much for your kind words and wonderful review! It was my pleasure to accommodate your changing plans and tailor the tour to your specific interests. I'm delighted to hear that you had a fun and interesting time on the tour. Sharing the local Osaka experience with you brought me great joy and fulfillment as a guide. I thoroughly enjoyed introducing you to the unique rules of eating kushikatsu and exploring the fascinating subculture of Osaka's gachapon (capsule toy) machines. These moments truly made the tour special, and I am glad they added to your experience. Additionally, I had a fantastic time sharing the Kansai dialect written on your sunglasses and guiding you through selecting souvenirs, showcasing the rich culture of Osaka. Your enjoyment of these aspects is what makes my job so rewarding. Thank you again for choosing my tour. I look forward to the opportunity to guide you on another adventure in Japan! Warm regards, Kazu

Kazu is a terrific guide

Kazu was a terrific guide for our excursion on June 18. He allowed us (7 adults) to customize our tour for whatever we wanted to do that day. He arrived promptly at our hotel at 8:30 am. Our first stop was the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Next we went to the Arashiyama area to see the bamboo forest. After a stroll through the forest, we stopped for lunch at a local ramen restaurant which was delicious. From there, we proceeded across the Togetsukyo Bridge to the Monkey park. The Monkey park was so fun!! Keep in mind, the hike up the hill is a bit more than I anticipated, it took us more than the 20 minutes suggested (for the hike) so allow yourself plenty of time to do this activity. From the monkey park we took a taxi to the Golden Pavillion. Great photo opps at this beautiful temple. Kazu was so friendly with all of us, especially our kids (not really kids, aged 18,21,24) but they talked anime and Pokemon a lot. Kazu also carried a camera and took photos of us all day. He also bought us some mochi candy from a street stand. Please do not hesitate to hire Kazu as your guide!

Darren F.

Dear Darren, Thank you very much for your kind words and for taking the time to share your experience. It was truly a pleasure guiding you and your group through Kyoto. I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed the customized tour and that our stops at Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama, and the Golden Pavilion were memorable for you. I'm glad the ramen lunch and the visit to the Monkey Park added to your enjoyment, despite the unexpected hike duration. It's wonderful to know that our discussions about anime and Pokemon were enjoyable for your family, and I'm happy that the photos and mochi candy were appreciated. The hike to the Monkey Park was indeed challenging, but hiking with all of you made it a very enjoyable and memorable experience for me. Your recommendation means a lot to me, and I hope to have the opportunity to guide you again in the future. See you guys in US or Japan. Warm regards, Kazu
