We rounded the corner onto Kappabashi-dori. My eyes lit up, my heart skipped two beats. At the same time Jack let out a big sigh and whined “oh nooo… today is going to SUUCK.”

If you’re heading to Tokyo and you like kitchen things, Kappabashi street is a must-do. It’s 4 or so blocks full of kitchen stores, many of which are commercial restaurant supply stores. I suggest visiting nearby Asakusa on the same day, especially if you think your travel buddies will not be as excited about kitchenware as you are. (Go there first, so you won’t have to lug your purchases around all day).
