I like this place but it's pricey and the best product is sold before you wake up. The locals obviously go elsewhere, but so much fun and it's lively. But I can buy live seafood everyday at home.

Please first of all, it is important to explore side lane’s shop. I found a great ramen shop that not well known except the locals. Plenty of shops to look but only a few are worthy. Cut tourist throat prices.

Crowded, so come in the morning shortly after it opens. You can purchase serving-size portions of fugu sashimi, freshly opened uni, unagi, beef, pork, sea scallop, or chicken skewers, fruit or veggies. Or you can buy a whole fugu blowfish to take home. Everything we...More

The food that they sell here is geared towards foreigners so expect the prices to be higher than other places. There are lots of choices though so if you looking for something with lots of choice it’s worth trying. Chose to namba train station

Open 10 am until 6pm, and Sunday is closed ( google said that... next time try writing in google) or download the Lonely Planet app. Is free and is amazing for travel in Japan.

Hi, it has to be open. Public holiday is only the first of January. Opening hours are 9 am to 6 pm, usually, but some shops can open or close earlier or later.
