Kappabashi Dougu-Gai is a shopping street with more than a century-long history, located between Asakusa and Ueno in the shitamachi or old downtown area of Tokyo. The street, running 800 meters north to south, is lined with some 170 specialty stores offering Japanese, Chinese, and Western tableware and lacquerware, Japanese confectionery and bread makers, kitchen tools and utensils, food ingredients and packaging supplies, and more. The beauty is that even ordinary consumers can buy professional appliances and implements. Japanese kitchen knives and faux food samples are a favorite of foreign customers.
