Kitchen Town




Some of you will know that I am planning a trip to Japan next March. One of my top must-see places is Kappabashi - "Kitchen Town" in Tokyo. It is basically a street full of wonderful food-related shops. Lacquerware, noodle bowls, knives, linens, and all sorts of yummy goodness. One of the more quirky shops is a "fake food" shop, selling plastic meals for restaurants to display in their windows. I can't wait to buy some plastic sushi.

You wait until you find Fabric Town & Bead Town! I spent up big last time I was there & will be doing again in February. I love Japan.

The plastic food is awesome, but I'm kind of wanting to turn my fire escape into a giant coffee cup now...

How exciting! I never made it to Kitchen Town, will have to put it on my list for my next trip. Where else are you going in Japan?
