The first stop of the tour will be at the " Shitaya Shrine "
Established in 730, this is the oldest 'Inari' shrine in all of Tokyo proper. It is dedicated to Gods of prosperous business, and the safety of one's family. Every day, its neighbors visit the quiet shrine to pray for their own good fortune.
If you would like to say a prayer, be sure to also get yourself their special fox-figure charms.
After pulling your fortune from it, take the fox home as a souvenir.
The next stop on the tour will be the "Kappabashi Kitchen Town". A huge statue of cook is the place mark of the building.
Since the year 1912, it has been a hub of kitchen and restaurant supplies, with over 170 stores within an 800m stretch.
People come from all over the world, from all walks of culinary life to shop here - for everyday tools, industrial cooking machines, fine porcelain, and high-quality Japanese knives.
Don't forget to stop in shops selling the famous Japanese wax and plastic food samples!
The final stop of the tour will be at the " Kama-Asa ", a store located in Kappabashi Kitchen Town.
