Shopping Asakusa

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.



Address: Nishi-Asakusa and Matsugaya, Taito-ku

Transport: Tawaramachi Station (Ginza line), exit 1 or Asakusa Station (Asakusa, Ginza lines), exits 1, 2, 3, A4
