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.

This is more a shopping arcade for tourists than a real, working market. That's not to say it's bad, it's just what it is. The tuna cutting demonstration is amazing to watch. Buying food and barbecuing it right there is a cool thing to do.
