Story by Megumi, Nagomi Kitchen



If you like cooking like me, I think you MUST visit Kappa-bashi(合羽橋)during your stay in Tokyo.

Kappa-bashi is the street and there are so many shops which provides cooking and kitchen tools such as plates, paper thing, pot, knives, cookie templates, chopstics and so on, I love this place verymuch!
There is not only for the consumars but also professionals like chef or manager of restaurant it means sometimes you can find and get staffs cheaper than the other place. When I go to Kappa-bashi,usually I need more than three hours to take a look for all the shops I’m interested in because there are tons of nice goods for cooking lovers. 🙂

I have thought that I want to introduce this place to all the guest of Nagomi Kitchen, but I have always forgot to take pictures because I always concentlate to my own shopping 😀
But few weeks ago, my boyfriend’s mother and aunt visited us from Denmark and we took them to Kappa-bashi so finally now I can introduce you my favorite place with many pics!
Many kind of design of tiny plates, it called “Mamezara” in Japanese. The price is just around 100-300 yen.


Tea pot, price is about 1,000 yen. You can find many kind of green tea easily at the supermarket and just put them into this pot with hot water.

Cups, price from 500 yen to 1,000 yen.

Nambu Ironware, it’s the Japanese traditional craft. Looks nice! DSC01188

If you visit Takayama during your trip in Japan, maybe you can find this one at there when you served original dish at Takayama, “Hooba-Miso”.

Steam cooker.

Kappa-bashi is also famous for the food sample.

Kappa-bashi is nearby Asakusa (about 10 minutes on foot) so you can schedule to visit this wonderful place at the same day as Asakusa.

Good luck for your shopping!

Megumi Kusunoki, (@nagomistation) currently a cooking instructor in Tokyo started Nagomi Kitchen in hopes for people around the world to learn more about real Japanese food. Combining her passion for tourism as a former scuba diving instructor, bus tour guide, and marketing and sales manager for an online guide for tourists coming to Japan, and food, Nagomi Kitchen was born out of a labor of love. She hopes that through Nagomi Kitchen more people will become more familiar with Japanese food and ingredients and be able to incorporate Japanese home cooking into their daily meal.
