|The golden statue of "kappa", the "mascot" of Kappabashi|
|Kama Asa Shoten - one of their store fronts at Kappabashi - they got excellent collections of cookware and knives|
|A soba specialty shop - selling everything from the dough cutting knives to rolling pins to the lacquer bowl for serving|
|Pots and Pans - or to me, kitchen toy!|
|Shopping yippie! Better yet now they just lowered the threshold for a VAT refund! No problem at spending 5000 yen and get a refund of 8%!|
|Inujirushi Kaban (犬印鞄製作所) - the Kappabashi branch of this 60-year-old canvas maker.|
|Love these food "model" (a.k.a.sampuru) seen at the display window of many Japanese restaurants! Omakase please!|
It’s almost noon by the time I finished walking through the block and bought what I needed/wanted. No matter how many times I was here, this is still my favorite neighborhood in Tokyo!
