If you’re visiting Asakusa’s Sensoji Temple and Nakamise, take a short detour to this area devoted to wholesale kitchenware shops. You’ll find low-cost crockery, rice cookers, knives, grills, indeed everything you need to set up a restaurant, including the realistic-looking plastic models of dishes that are displayed in restaurant windows. The shops run along Shinbori-dori, from the corner of Asakusa-dori; look for the giant chef’s head on the top of the Niimi store.
Nishi-Asakusa and Matsugaya, Taito-ku
