Kappabashi, Tokyo

Kappabashi is a must see area if you like cooking. You will find over 170 shops, mostly wholesale shops with kitchen items and restaurant supplies.

Good place to look for knives, plates, ceramics, bowls, plastic food, and many more kitchen items.

Knife shops I like:


How to get there: If you walk from Senso-ji, Asakusa, it is about 10 minutes walk. Othersiwe, Tawara-cho station on Ginza line
Hours: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
