Kitchen Town (Kappabashi), Taito

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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
