Explore Kappabashi

Give your kitchenware an upgrade during this Connections-organized trip to the Tokyo district of Kappabashi.

Dubbed “kitchen town,” Kappabashi is a mecca for chefs, restauranteurs, amateur cooking enthusiasts and curious tourists.

Within walking distance of Asakusa’s Sensoji (Tokyo’s oldest temple), this kitchenware-focused area is brimming with more than 160 stores selling everything from Japanese ceramics and beautifully crafted knives to lacquerware and Japan’s famous plastic food samples.

Whether you’re looking for new crockery and cutlery or a few fun souvenirs, sign up for this morning of browsing and adventure in a fascinating pocket of Tokyo.

Most stores accept credit cards, but you’re advised to bring cash as well.

Members will have the chance to enjoy lunch together at the end of the tour if they wish.
