  • Another traditional market packed with tourists. Close to Namba and easy to find. Wide selection of street food, fresh sea food, fruits, dried food as well as souvenir shops. A place to walk through to experience but do not need to spend too much time here. Some stalls provide tables for fine in. Usually closed at 6 pm. We brought Japanese Melon from the fruits stall and they helped to packed it nicely.
  • There is a nice tea shop with reasonable prices, and free tastings for each tea. Also, there are smaller shops for food near the end of the more popular places, and there is also a nice coffee shop with plenty of freshly roasted beans. There are tons of tour groups that mob the place, so the atmosphere isn’t so good. And definitely check and compare prices.
