For this blog for the Tokyo Olympic Games in two years time
It aims to send information for overseas people
Please do not hesitate to let me know about Japan, and I will send out various information so that I can enjoy Japan.

Unfortunately I can not speak English at all.
Therefore, this English is all using Google translation.
Even if there is somewhat strange translation, I want it forgiven
I will keep links on the top of this category, so if you are interested I also want you to see it



If you are a cook or a wife who likes cooking, I want you to go to Kappabashi

There is a town called Kappabashi.
This town is famous for professional chefs coming to buy tools.
Let’s say clearly.
Japanese people do not come so much.
However, tourists from abroad are many in this town.
Japanese cooking utensils seem to be very good in quality, foreign tourists, especially chefs
“If you came to Japan, I would buy a tool here,” he said.
By the way, it is expensive because Japanese do not visit this town very often.
It seems that all of the professional’s cooking utensils are available, but the price of the cooking utensils used by professionals will inevitably increase.
I also have one high-class kitchen knife, so I understand how good the quality cooking utensils are.
However, in general households it is very rare to use such tools

I think that the price of kitchen knife used in general household in Japan is about 3000 yen per one.
However, the kitchen knife sold at Kappabashi is about 10,000 yen.

I came across chance to introduce HP introduced in English, so I will introduce it here.

301 Moved Permanently

I’m happy when it comes to reference!

If you are interested in Kappabashi, introduce the directions.
First of all, please do your best to go to Yamanote line.
I think that there are no people who are in Tokyo and can not explain the location of the Yamanote Line and I think that is not that difficult.
The Yamanote line is a circular line existing in the center of Tokyo
If I got on for an hour I could come back to the station I got on!

The price is about 200 yen no matter how expensive it is

If I can get on the Yamanote line, I will go to Ueno station.
No matter how far you are, you can arrive in thirty minutes.
It’s around 15 minutes from Tokyo station
It’s around 30 minutes from Shinjuku.
If you can get off at Ueno station, then you can find a taxi
When you get off the station it is easy to find a taxi because you are running a lot
Do not think about walking even if you make a mistake.
I’m not walking distance
If you use a taxi you will take me around 1000 yen.

It is a Kabane bridge where Japanese people do not go much, but you can get knives of Japanese traditional culture.

Also, food samples are popular souvenirs for foreigners.

Such a person


Food samples look like food, but they can not be eaten.
The Japanese see these items in the restaurant.
However, I think that no one thinks to buy it as a souvenir.

However, it seems that this foreign food sample is popular for souvenirs.

Food samples are very expensive.
Because it is expensive, I do not recommend it as a souvenir, but if you think that you want this food sample absolutely, there is a shop that you want us to drop by before you go to Kappabashi.
That’s a 100 yen uniform shop Daiso
I want you to see this website.

All food samples posted here are 100 yen


It is not necessarily a luxury item, but if you have to buy a lot of souvenirs, I definitely want you to go.

The big 100 yen shop in Tokyo is famous here

店舗マップ | ダイソー

The name of the station is Kinshicho

There is a large store of 100 yen shop Daiso

There are small shops anywhere in Tokyo, but few large stores.

Because you can get there from Tokyo station in around 20 minutes, if you have to buy a lot of souvenirs stand on the last day.
Most products are 100 yen!
※ Please note that there are things that are not 100 yen
