We visited this area twice during our trip. It had quiet a few different things to look at from shoes and clothing to all sorts of different foods, fresh fruit and fresh fish, meats and sweet treats and snacks. It was very busy both times we went. We had no trouble walking around looking and buying for about 2 hours... More

My favourite affordable don holes in the wall are at this street. A bowl of rice with slices of raw fish will set you back $5-$8. Plenty of shopping opportunities too.

We lived in Ueno for two days and visited Ameyoko market six times. Food is cheap, prices super competitive. A lot of little hidden streets and little diners. I really enjoyed this market and want to come back there. Absolutely loved it. Must-see if you are in Tokyo.

Go and visit the market on the same day you're visiting Ueno park. There are many nice restaurants around and things to eat at the market.

Walked through Ameyoko shopping street at ueno. Came out from Keisei-ueno station. Cross junction. Many good and affordable stuff. Cheaper than other shopping streets. Also several kebab dining outlets. Also many eating outlets nearby. We made a mistake by trying to go to eatries at Ueno park. Long q and limited choices. Head towards Ameyoko, more choices.

Very crowded shopping street, can see both the local and tourists shopping there, even the seafood and vegetables are sold here. If you don't have much time to spend on shopping then I would suggest that you skip this place.

I came to this place after a stroll through Ueno park. This is a crowded street where you can buy cheap souvenirs, food, gonto purikura booth stores, all next to the train station. Very crowded, beware.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
