Officially the “Kappabashi Dōgu Matsuri” (Kappabashi Tool Festival), this festival is a showcase of Tokyo’s premiere neighborhood for both amateur and professional kitchen supplies – from knives, to porcelain to realistic plastic food models.
Although the “Kappa ichi” (Kappa market) part of the festival officially runs for a week, most of the festivities — such as a sweets festival, parades, a stamp rally and more, take place on the final Sunday and Monday (which is a public holiday).
On Monday, Oct 10 the road will be closed to cars and pedestrians can wander freely.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
