Everything from golf sets to bonito flakes and street food in one sprawling cheerful boisterous market. Lots of local colour and great choices! Some problems with language though not impossible to manage. Opportunities for bargaining though a little limited. Must go!

Loads of shop and store. You will enjoy shopping, spending your time to walk around. If you wish to get a souvenir esp local snack you can go to Takeya building (purple buildings). It’s a tax free shop:)

It is a nice place to wander around and get a bit of the local culture. Worth to pass by if you're in the area.

Lots of shops, great to explore and walk around for a while. Some stores are very similar so it’s not a huge variety but still worth checking out. Find the crepe place in here, it’s amazing

Ameyoko Shopping Street is your typical "Japanese Shopping Street" on steroids! It's even better if you get there an hour before sunset to see the character and ambiance change, it's enchanting to see it come more alive at night with lights, color and sound. There...More

Ameyoko is the best place to get cheapest Japanese snacks and skin care products compared to other area. Many shops offer tax refund for tourists.

Ameyoko market was born on the ashes of World War II and the ensuing black market. Today I'm still amazed it has managed to resist the appetite of promoters. Nestled under the tracks of Yamomote line, this is where commuters buy their dinner, food, or...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
