Kappabashi Street

Yesterday afternoon once the food tour was over we headed over to Kappabashi street to look at all the food related products. The entire street is dedicated to vendors selling items for the food industry. An excellent souvenir to take home would be a good quality Japanese kitchen knife (just don’t carry it in your hand luggage). This street also sells all the fake plastic food you see on display in restaurants.

This guy in the chef’s hat is at the start of Kappabashi St.

How do I get here ?

You can walk from Ueno station on the Yamanote line (the walk takes about 10 minutes). You can get closer if you take the Ginza subway line

When searching in Google maps, the big Chef is found at “Niimi Cooker”. The closest metro station is Tawaramachi.
