It's the probably the one and only place in Tokyo where you can stil bargain. You find there all kinds of clothing, shoes, bags, belts, luggage... you name it. This place has a unique charm, especially the parts right below the rails or JR line. What makes it perfect, is the big choice of all kind food stuff - from... More

It was not convincing at first, but if you really want to find fashion products, cosmetics, and good food, this is the right place! At some stores, they sell branded boots, and of course the famous Japanese denim brands. Surprisingly, they are quite cheap if compared to their price outside Japan.

The atmosphere is great with local vendors selling their wares at discounted prices to the masses alongside the elevated rail line near Ueno. I managed to ride my bike through here on a busy day and was amazed at the range of goods, and how different it felt to other shopping areas like Shibuya and Ginza.

Spent an afternoon looking around the market - there are some great restaurants here (both great yakitori and fresh seafood). The location is special as you sit underneath the train tracks and eat dinner. Highly recommend to go if you want some casual food at great prices!

The main focus of the market are the stalls selling all kinds of local & Western goods. From sports jerseys to rubber & leather footwear, jewelry, dried & fresh goods and even housewares. But for someone like me who travels to Japan on a regular basis, the food stalls are a must try for everyone. Do not be intimidated that... More

This area is packed with lots of shops selling clothing, bags and footwear and some restaurants. Not forgetting pachinko parlours too. A pretty lively place especially in the late evening and just after work hours. Good for a stroll about and just taking in the scenes.

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.
