You don't have to spend a cent and you'll still havce a great time here. The people watching is wonderful - whether it's vendors trying to attract business,the families walking in and through, the school students or tourists. A vast array of people seem to get along well. Fascinating area.

This is an area with very crowded streets. A lot of selling going on. Some really good deals and some really bad. You need to know your prices. A gritty and colorful area with some surprisingly decent food on the streets.

The Sea Urchins (Uni) and Fish roe (Mentaiko) actually taste good and reasonably priced at the outdoor seafood market. Nice little outdoor restaurants where you could enjoy your beer and people watch. This is also the place where you can get cheap chocolates at wholesale prices. Been to Tokyo 5 times and already been to this place 3 times. Even... More

Ameyoko street market reminds me of places like Mongkok in Hongkong and Sinchon in Seoul. This market sells a variety of products from food, fruits to your fashion accessories. It is located near Ueno JR train station. I love street food and people watching, it's such a nice experience. Note that it can get very crowded in the day. Ichiran... More

A market selling a broad range of products, from fresh seafood to bags and cosmetics. There are convenience stores here and there, and it was really packed. There are also food vendors where people sit just outside the store and eat away. We were so tempted to try out one of the kebab store because it smelled so good. We... More

This market is located under the elevated train tracks leading to the Ueno Train Station and several blocks surrounding it. Among it's offerings are fresh fruit, fresh seafood and fish, groceries, spices, t-shirts, clothing, jewelry, western (cowboy) wear, Anime, tattoos, restaurants, bars, and Pachinko parlours. On a Sunday afternoon, if the weather is fine, the area can be very crowded,... More

Very crowded, many shops selling almost the same. Prices are almost the same as in the regular shops. I am not sure about the quality of the sold articles, specially shoes and clothes, could be fakes.

It reminded me the night market at Mong Kok, Hong Kong (女人街). Besides cheap clothings, fake brand-named shoes and handbags, there are seafood stores selling both fresh and dry seafood. There are also lots of restaurants. They all looked good and cheap prices, so it was hard for us to decide which one to go to. You will have fund... More
