Between the famous sight seeing places, Ueno and Asakusa, there is a unique town which has been attracting people who are interested in cooking. Kappa-bashi; the mecca of cooks and owners of all kind of restaurant.
If you want to open your own restaurant, I recommend you to visit this town. And also you can enjoy your shopping there as a non-professional visitor.
Interior and Exterior shops…
Here is a food sample shop. These samples are made by wax and plastic. These were very exquisite and,,, looked yummy!
Don’t forget stools, chairs and tables for opening your restaurant.
What kind of uniform do you need?
You can buy a cash register here.
This shop attracted me very much.
Look! You can roast coffee beans by yourself on a gas range.
You want to open a chinese restaurant?
And otherwise, there are many shops for soba
restaurant, confectioners, etc, etc...
The closest station of Kappa-bashi is Inaricho or Tawaramachi of Tokyo metro Ginza line.
You can find the landmark buildings, the first photo of this posting and the photo below, from Asakusa-dori street. This is a gate for Kappa-bashi area.
You'd better visit on weekdays or Saturday. On Sunday, most of shops are closed.
