Eat good food in Osaka!

This market is usually where vendors come to make their purchases, but is also crowded with visitors. Let’s have breakfast here while walking down the street! Some fish retailers will actually cut the tuna’s head on site and serve it with soy sauce. They’ll even have fresh sea urchin to eat by the spoonful!
