We loved the plastic food shop, Maiduru, the best. Plastic food mobile phone covers? A free standing wok tossing fried rice? Yes. But it was great to wander and if you are a cook you could spend hours with gadgets, pans, porcelain and knives.

Well to the person who wrote no one spoke English there, arou d the same time I was there, at least one person there did speak English, not fluent but definitely enough to communicate what it is you need, and want to use the knife for, the quality and workman ship, how many folds etc. Not to mention would you like your name engraved into the knife and sharpened at the same time. That is enough to buy a knife and know what I am looking for. Staff were very friendly and the old man behind the scenes looked like he had been there a while, the one doing the engraving.
I bought the Yo Knife, a nice little kitchen knife that has stayed sharp for the 3 months I have owned it

I loved browsing around this area but ended up buying quite a bit of gorgeous crockery that I then lugged half way across Tokyo - including a walk to and around the Sensoji Temple and the Amuse Museum. Suggest better planning than I did - perhaps end the day here rather than starting it here as, if you have any interest in kitchenware, you will more than likely buy some stuff! Also google maps took me past the busy end and I then had to backtrack. Happened a couple of times in Tokyo that google maps took me long circuitous routes.

Easily spend an hour or 2 here looking at all the restaurant and cooking stuff for sale. You can buy incredible knives and pay anything from $50 AUD to thousands. There is a fabulous shop which specialises in hand crafted chopsticks in beautiful timbers and stores that sell all sorts of china and porcelain dishes. It is an easy walk from Asakusa.
