This place gives you a wide variety of shopping and eating options; which also has a 24-7 sashimi place with a reasonably priced menu. From 1500¥ Japanese dolls, to 10000¥ tip top quality leather gloves, fresh seaweeds and fruits; or simply drop by for a photography day trip, this place has so much to offer.

It is a very busy and crowded shopping area, full of locals as well as visitors. It is located just outside Ueno Station. The place is full of low priced eating outlets. I did not try out the food but the seating environment is not appealing. The shops and the market stalls lining the streets sell all kinds of food... More

Great if you would like to buy things in big packages, cheap, good for souvenirs. Located very close to Ueno Park is a good place to check for shopping.

I walked through here from the Mitsui Garden Ueno on my way to the Book-Off by the Ueno-okachimachi station. It was nicely lit up and bustling at night. There were numerous schoolgirls trying to win things out of claw machines and gashapon. It gave me a nice feeling on my way to buy mooks.

Ameyoko is a short walk from Ueno Park. The name “Ameyoko” is a short form for “Ameya Yokocho” (candy store alley), as candies were traditionally sold there. Today, the busy market street is selling various products such as clothes, bags, cosmetics, fresh fish, dried food and spices. A nice place to experience shopping like the locals.

I have been to various outdoor markets in Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore as well as Japan but I don't think there's any U. S. equivalent. Anyway, I really like Ameyoko as it is more organized than other street markets as it has a good mix of day to day goods, branded items, local designers, bars, clubs, restaurants, arcades, pachinko...

There's a lot of just-above-flea marker sort of stores here, but ignore those. Come for the vendors selling the freshest fruit on sticks for a few hundred yen, or the little tea shop where an old woman will greet you with delicate little cups of steaming sencha, or the butadon joint that offers sizes all the way up to giga...

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.
