“For all your kitchen and mythical lizard needs”
I love wandering down Kappabashi Street, passing statues of mythical lizard creatures, kitchen shops, and plastic fish. One of the best things here though are the regular events. Usually once a month there is Kappa Day; when the event is taking place (usually at a weekend) the road is closed to vehicles, and small stalls are set up along the road selling gifts and delicious street food. There are live shows from local street performers, or musical acts, and a chance to have your photograph with the street's mascot character!
