If you like to cook, there is a district you can't miss, Kappabashi food industry market street.
Within half a mile length, there are over 170 food industry related shops and you can find every cooking/restaurant related items imaginable there such as food samples, restaurant uniform, knives, tablewares, cookie cutters, pots and skillets in various sizes and more.
Japanese knives are well known for its cool design and the sharpness and knife shops are especially popular among tourist. One knife shop offers free name-engraving service at the moment of purchase !
There are several food sample shops and you can find interesting goods like a book marker that looks just like a bacon, a roll cake-like tape cutter, sushi magnet, ice-cream shaped key chain, or make-it-yourself kit. If you have small children, keep an eye on them ! These samples look so real and your kids could try to eat those.
So it's a fun place to walk around if you are professional chef or not a cooking type of person at all.
