You can get food and a ton of food souvenirs here, it is located near to Ueno Park so you could pair the visit to Ameyoko with a visit to the Ueno zoo or Ueno's other museums. It gave me a little big of rustic tokyo, and in a secluded alley we found a batting stadium! Look around. Also, try... More

Ameyoka really is just an average shopping street like in another suburb of Tokyo but the prices are a little higher than most. The range of goods is not very large and any major department store in the city can offer the same plus far better goods at about the same price.

After a stroll through Ueno Park (after missing the free walking tour - oops!), we meandered through Ameyoko walking streets. We love outdoor markets for their variety and busy vibe, and this place didn't let us down. Had a tasty Red Bean Fish-shaped Pastry, and ate lunch at one of the many food stalls. Both Japanese and international (and halal)... More

We visited this place during our 2nd day in Tokyo. It is basically a long narrow street where there are vendors selling different goods from fresh seafood, clothing, snacks, fresh produce, etc. The place is pretty average and not overly crowded. You may find a lot of bargains here. Great place to visit.

Great variety of shops including food, usually cheaper that other areas of Tokyo.There are many alleys full of shops that intersect each other, may be confusing if you try to remember where you are coming from as they all look alike, but we considered that part of the fun and the exploring! On an odd note while buying a pair... More

I have visited Ameyoko in 2 out of 4 trips to Japan. This time, we went on a day during New Year celebrations so the markets were packed with locals buying seafood such as octopus, prawns and fish. The atmosphere was wonderful. There are some great little eateries dotted around the stalls.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood 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.
