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.
