Kappabashi Dori, Tokyo

Metro: Tawaramachi's insider take:

This street is filled with stores selling cutlery, crockery, and kitchenware to the restaurant trade. You might not want the vat-sized saucepans, but there are many bargains to be had, including good glassware, cheap ceramics, and Japanese kitchen implements. This is also the place to come if you're after one of those uncannily realistic plastic plates of food that sit outside many Japanese restaurants.

Most stores closed Sundays.
