Kappabashi Tours

Kappabashi
Take a stroll down Kappabashi Street in downtown Tokyo and you’ll quickly understand why the area has been nicknamed Kitchen Town. In a city with more Michelin stars than Paris and London combined, chefs come to this place to shop for everything from sashimi knives and kitchen equipment to fake sample food. Stretching over half a mile, it’s Japan’s largest shopping street devoted solely to the culinary arts.

While the typical visitor likely isn’t in the market for kitchenware, the street is still worth a visit for its cultural significance, as well as for the opportunity to pick up some rather unique souvenirs, like plastic sushi or rice crackers shaped like super heroes.

Practical Info

Kappabashi is a large area, so remember to wear comfortable walking shoes. Tawaramachi Station on the Ginza Line is just a short walk away.
Address: Kappabashi Street, Tokyo, Japan
