In & Around:
From Kappabashi (合羽橋) also known just as Kitchen Town looking at nearby Tokyo SkyTree tower. This district is less than 10 minutes walk from Asakusa shrine. See walking map below.
It worth checking out if you plan to go to Asakusa shrine. The area populated with shops supplying kitchenware and one of the best place to get a Japanese knife. Unlike any area in Tokyo which often full of people, neon light or large skyscraper, this neighborhood gives a lay back old Tokyo town feeling, small shop everywhere, lot and lot of power lines crisscross above and between buildings. Shops here are closed early and very few people walking at night.
