Kappabashi is an offbeat area of Tokyo city. In Taito ward, this old “kitchen town” is visited by Japanese professionals desiring equipment for their restaurant, bar, hotel, cooking school… but also by foreigners interested in high-quality cooking knives, incredibly realistic fake food, etc.
Kappabashi is near Iriya subway station (Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line), Tawaramachi subway station (Tokyo Metro Ginza Line), and Asakusa train station (Tsukuba Express line). Asakusa subway station and Ueno train station are at walking distance; holders of a JR Pass can reach Ueno for free by riding the Yamanote Line. To easily find your way on foot, we recommend you to get a map of Kappabashi & Asakusa.
Our travel agency organizes Yes in Japan 1-day tours in English and French including “Kappabashi-dori” shopping street because its shops are fun, because fake food is a great gift, and because many foreign chefs need an interpreter to discuss with Japanese shopkeepers! On holidays in Japan with your children? Join a memorable “Make fake food” activity in Kappabashi 🙂
Following its map of Tokyo “North of the Imperial Palace” for spring/summer 2015, the Yes in Japan team is preparing a great map of Tokyo “East of the Imperial Palace” for summer/autumn 2015. Help us make our map even more interesting and useful by suggesting types of services, restaurants, stores, or Japanese products you would like to see on it before the end of May! Our inbound travel manager recently detailed his preferences but any other idea for foreign adults or children in Japan is welcome 🙂
This free walking and shopping map in English language including the subway/train stations of Ginza, Hibiya, Mitsukoshi-mae, Nihombashi, Otemachi, Shimbashi, Tokyo, Toranomon, Tsukiji, and Yurakucho will be available online and will be distributed at local hotels in Chiyoda, Chuo and Minato wards…
A couple of French-speaking tourists in Tokyo e-mailed our Yes in Japan French manager (always glad to help people in trouble) to thank him for helping them order their lunch at a Japanese restaurant without English menu and without English-speaking staff then recommending Ebisudo Gallery near Jimbocho station (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) to buy beautiful “Japanese paintings” (ukiyo-e woodblock prints in fact) at a reasonable price. They found the art shop with our Get Japan map of Jimbocho area, loved the gallery and its shopkeeper, and bought 2 ukiyo-e 🙂
