合羽橋の代名詞である食器や厨房製品だけでなく、看板屋さん食品サンプル屋さんなども並んでいます。カップルで歩いていても楽しいですよ。外国人観光客も結構歩いていますよ。 more »In addition to tableware and kitchen products, which are synonymous with The Habashi, there are also signboard shops and food sample shops. It's fun to walk as a couple. Foreign tourists are also quite walking.
Nice selection of professional kitchen knives- even for home cooking if you like extravaganza. The seller indicated the origin of the product, but I was not sure if buying directly would be more affordable. Many stores are representing tradition kept for generations and look like family business. I wish they had a delivery and online ordering, but that is not a face-to-face transaction. Of course you have to pay cash. See the Lawson or 7-eleven to get some from the ATM.
Walking down this shopping street that sells all kinds of restaurant and kitchen stuff is an interesting experience, although my aunt felt that overall prices were a bit steep. The life-like food displays were pretty cool though. I saw that we could take lessons in making our own uncannily-real food here, which sparks an idea for my upcoming food heritage gallery.
