Overview
More
50 minutes from Kansai International Airport (Osaka) by car. The largest number of tuna cutting shows in Japan. The fattiest part of tuna (Otoro) sushi is must-eat in this market. It's a kind of tourist seafood market. At the seaside BBQ area, you can grill & eat all the seafood purchased in Kuroshio Market. Some of the seafood can be prepared as Sashimi or steamed/boiled, free of charge.

It is a mini sized fish market that provide free tuna cutting show at specific time. It is a good place to visit if you're on a relaxing tour and you have a lot of time to spare. Otherwise, it's really nothing special.
