Kappabashi located between Ueno Station and Asakusa Station.
The giant chef at the top of the building is a Kappabashi landmark.
Kappabashi shopping street has a history of over 100 years and 150 shops line the street.
There is an Amazing Huge variety of kitchenware! knives, pots, pans, plates, glasses, chopsticks, plastic display food, etc.. You can find everything you can imagine.
Chefs from all over Japan visit here to purchase restaurant supplies and Japanese kitchen knives.
Japanese chef knives are some of the best knives available in the world.
There is a variety of kitchen knives and are not only for professional use.
Staff will find the best kitchen knife for you.
The plastic food looks amazingly real. Worth a look.
It’s worth knowing that there’s a tax refund center. Don’t forget your passport.
I recommend you to go Mon-Fri because 10% shops closed on Saturday and on Sunday and Holidays about 70% shops are closed.
If you are into cooking, you will love Kappabashi!
