So many shops selling food, dry goods, sporting goods, pre loved designer bags, everything you could probably want. The vibe is noisy and fun. It's a bit sad that it becomes so crowded with tourists during high season but still a great way to escape...More

It's really crowded but a nice place for shopping. You can buy cosmetics, shoes, clothing, and have some snacks here.

There's 2 streets to this. One part of Ameyokocho sells seafoods and local products, the other part is mostly restaurants, sneakers, clothes and souvenirs. Endless amount of shops with great prices however if you can't speak Japanese haggling for a bargain would be slightly difficult....More

A destination with an endless number of shops with great prices! We enjoyed this open market experience as well as the items that we purchased. With easy accessibility through the Tokyo subway system you can easily squeeze in time to visit this unique destination.

This area is like an endless maze of alleys filled with vendors selling all things Japanese. We noticed that the vendors are basically situated a right beneath or beside the train line and the start of it all is literally steps away from the Ueno...More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
