Kappabashi Kitchenware Festival

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).
