Kappabashi Dōgu-gai (Kitchenware Street)
Kappabashi is Tokyo’s “kitchen town”, supplying restaurants with the tools of their trade for over 100 years. There are over 170 shops with everything from tableware, kitchen equipment, uniforms, packaging and furniture. If you’re looking for something to take home, Kappabashi has items such as chopsticks, traditional ceramics, sake cups, or bamboo ware. There are even shops dedicated to making the very realistic-looking food models displayed in Japanese restaurant windows, which would be an unusual souvenir. #tokyo #traditional #gifts
