Noren Shop in Kappabashi, a street in Tokyo which is almost entirely populated with shops supplying the restaurant trade. These shops sell everything from knives, restaurant decorations, plastic display food samples found in Japanese restaurants to display their menus. The street has also become an offbeat tourist destination thanks to the wacky displays and unique souvenir items found only in Japan. The street's name is believed to come from the popular mythical creature, the Kappa, a Japanese water demon.
