Kitchen Town (Kappabashi), Taito
(4.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Witness the behind-the-scenes aspect of Japanese restaurant business at Kitchen Town (Kappabashi), a busy street packed with shops hawking a huge range of dining-related wares. A tourist attraction in itself, the street bursts with colorful storefronts selling paper lanterns, plastic display food, cookware, and just about any other restaurant supply you can name. Stroll down the street and admire the wide selection of gear on sale, but keep in mind that you won't actually find food itself here. Don't forget to bring your camera to snap a photo of a giant statue of a chef's head, which stands above the street's southern entrance. Use our Tokyo holiday planner to arrange your visit to Kitchen Town (Kappabashi) and other attractions in Tokyo.

  • As good tourists, looking for a basic "Japanese style" porcelain teapot, we mostly found dinnerware for restaurants, "European Nordic" style very fashionable currently in Tokyo, at the global supplies of food for average prices. On Saturday, closing around 4 pm / 5 pm.

  • 從開店到家廚通通都有~ 你想的到的,想不到的,通通有 而且會完全淪陷在那裡,這條街也蠻長的,還有兩邊, 每一家賣的東西沒有太多的重複性質,重點真的要多家比價 如果嫌多家比價麻煩,大概前面第一、二家就可以讓你的荷包 空空了! 
  • Most shops are closed on weekends and most of them do not have English speaking staff. If you are browsing and have time, walk one side of the street to the very bottom, have lunch at Bamian Restauran...  more »
