Kappabashi, also known as the Kitchen Town, is a street in Tokyo between Ueno and Asakusa featuring shops ideal for restaurants and cooking. While it's not completely sure how Kappabashi got it's name, due to Kappa being a homophone for the mythical creature, the shops along Kappabashi use the Kappa as their mascot. You're bound to walk past friendly looking kappa from store to store while walking along the street. With over 170 shops and at nearly half a mile long, Kappabashi is Japan's largest shopping area dedicated to providing the best kitchen and cooking goods in the country.
While at Kappabashi, you are sure to find anything your kitchen doesn't have. Selling everything from utensils, restaurant furniture, ovens, decorations, kitchen equipment, baking ingredients, and even
fake food samples, Kappabashi is bound to have whatever you need to turn your kitchen into a five-star cooking facility.
If you're looking for new kitchen supplies, fake food, or just want to find inspiration for your next dish, stop by Kappabashi during a free day in Tokyo with our extensive line of Cherry Blossom Japan Tours and Japan Anime Tour Packages available Spring and Year-Round!
