Kappabashi for kitchen goods
Also known as ‘Kitchen Town’, this roughly 800m-long street in Asakusa is home to hundreds of shops selling every kind of pot, dish and kitchen utensil imaginable. Whatever your budget, you can find something to take home with you, from a ¥100 pair of chopsticks to a ¥10,000 kitchen knife. You can even pick up plastic food models that are often displayed outside restaurants. Many of the stores only cater to restaurateurs or wholesale buyers, but check out our Kappabashi guide to find the best shops for more casual buyers in the neighbourhood.
