If you have time it is nice to walk from shop to shop...some are more touristy but some are full of real kitchen stuff for japanese restaurants....the prices are ok although the nice things are always expensive

Must do. You can buy so many incredible things for your kitchen here and at reasonable prices. It’s nearly all made in Japan. Several shops and boutiques and tons of places to grab a quick bite.

Two chefs at different restaurants recommended a visit to Kappabashi after I oohhed and awed over their table settings. I am so glad I listened to them! We spent most of a day strolling through the shops and shipped a few boxes of stone wares home to the USA-at pretty reasonable prices. Everything from pots and pans, knives to plastic sushi is available along the main street.

Dengama was my favorite at the corner of Asakusa Dori and Kappabashi Dougugai St.

Spent a very long time walking both sides of the street exploring whats on offer. The huge chef and teacups and saucers mark the beginning of a cooks heaven. Shop here for everything you need. Be careful though there are lots of shops and only so much room in your suitcase. Great place to buy a souvenir plastic food plate but it will be expensive. Well worth a visit.

We now make it a point to visit Kappabashi whenever we are in Tokyo. It is fun to seek out neat and well made kitchen tools and gadgets typically priced lower than other stores in Tokyo. You do not need to be a professional chef or baker to enjoy shopping here. We often buy useful kitchen items as souvenirs for family and friends back home. Of course, there are also the very realistic plastic food displays or key chains available at a number of stores.
