Kitchenware, coffee, glassware, knives….and more! If you enjoy cooking this is a spot you can not miss out in Tokyo!

From home to industrial use, its a place that everyone can relish, it got you covered from head to toe (especially if you’re a restaurant owner)

Planning to cook for more people, why not consider upgrading your kitchenware ୧⍢⃝୨

Perhaps a bento box to give as a souvenir?

Find your ideal chopsticks and pair em with your friends (●ゝω)ノヽ(∀<●)

Be spoilt for choice

Ahh~ Wood the only material that transcends; from functional to timeless beauty

hmmm…should I get this as my new coffee cup ੨੨(´・・`)

Buy a nabe back home and have a shabu shabu party!

Endless display of plastic food!

Fooled me from afar….thought it was a crepe store. Was kinda getting hungry after 2 hrs of shopping >_<

Keep note that the area does not have many places to just chill. About halfway there is 1 cafe called Bridge and aside from that you can find a Mos Burger at the south exit.

If you want a proper meal…wonder off to the side street and you will find several eateries.
Here’s are my go-to shops  ⁺✧.(˃̶ ॣ⌣ ॣ˂̶∗̀)ɞ⁾


Kichita Snack Shop // 吉田菓子道店

A must-go for bakers, it got you covered from baking molds, fancy cutters to cute muffin liners and many many more.

 


Honma // 本間商店


Love Japaneses food and wanna whip up a dish of your own?

Buy all your supplies here, cheaper than supermarket and its supersize 😮


Kamata // かまた丸研社


Personalize your knives and get it engraved! It only takes 3 minutes, so why not?

These are professional knives, so prepare to pay a hefty amount here.

Top quality knives await you with a hefty price that can go up to 1000 USD ヾ(。>﹏<。)ノ


Kamasa // 釜浅商店


Over 100 years of history, this store is known for handmade iron kitchenware.

After the revamp back in 2011 it started selling all kinds of luxury kitchenware and aesthetically appealing pots and pans.


Union // ユニオン


I love coffee, yes I may be on the path in becoming a ‘coffee snob’ (ᅙωᅙ)ふっふっふ

Anywhoo…I get super hyped here. The variety of beans and the smell is just so alluring.

Beans beanie beaaaanns!! 

They also roast beans near the front entrance

They got all kinds of coffee machine from Hario V60 to  bruer cold brew and more.

Too bad they don’t serve out coffee (☍﹏⁰)。

 


If you plan on traveling by car, the Kappabashi street have many parking slots just outside each stores. Parking cost 300 yen/hour and only accepts 100 yen coin.


Don’t forget to bring your passport to get your items tax free! Some stores even deliver abroad. So go out there and shop till you drop.
