Catching up on my Japan posts while watching Japan play Colombia. Go Japan! 🇯🇵
Visiting Kuromon Ichiba market was for me. I looove visiting markets and I was dragging my reluctant kids along, whether they liked it or not! Noey (disapprovingly) : “Did you come on this holiday to eat, Mummy?” Why, yes I did, son!
Kuromon did not disappoint and the kids ended up having a great time with Noey ogling all the giant crab legs and shellfish, and Mei trying to get me to buy all the fruit she saw! Aside from kyoho grapes, she got a slice of amazingly sweet melon which she immediately regretted not buying two pieces of. I got scallops, uni and some super chunky tuna makis, and lamented to D about him foiling my original plan to come for lunch as I was feeling a bit full! Still, it was fun market to browse. It wasn’t just food - I spied veg stalls, a flower stall and a shop selling fabrics in the mix which lent some sense of authenticity to the place. If I’m ever in Osaka again, I’ll be back. This time, with an empty stomach!
