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

A must-go in Ueno. Just next to Ueno station and a lot of things to buy. Shoes and clothes are relatively cheap, compare with department store. Must visit the snack shop if you want to buy something back for sharing.

This place is a long strip of market stalls, we spent about 1-2 hours here but if we had more time we would've stayed longer to explore more of this. We had some nice kebabs as it was lunch time when we went on a...More

An interesting, fun and sometimes crowded street shopping that maybe reminds about old times in Tokyo. Lots of different type of goods. Great to combine with a visit to Ueno park.

Wonderful street shopping for souvenirs, food and snacks. Most locals and tourists prefer to hang out here for good bargain and good atmosphere.

I go to Ameyoko every time I get a chance when I am in Tokyo. It offers some street food as well as souvenirs. It is located between Ueno station and Okachimachi station. During the peak time, which is the weekend and the year end,...More

A bunch of shops and small affordable restaurants gathered together in some 4 or 5 blocks. Interesting to see some stores and some nice restaurants.

Some fun stuff, a lot of kitschy stuff, but the good news is you can bargain and get more than you pay.

This market is good to visit while in the Ueno area but I would not make it a special spot. Lots of slot machines and small shops but nothing special enough to make it an attraction on its own. Was approached by two men (non-japanese)...More

A lot of people here shopping, looking for deals or small souvenirs. Many stalls from small restaurants, snack shops, toiletry shops, to souvenir shops. Can be a bit crowded. Nice place to kill a couple of hours if you don't mind bumping into people.

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

The trains and subways are on different map, so you have to know exactly where to go and then find the station and the system that close to. My recommendation is to download applications that tell you how to get from one... More
