Great little shops sprawled out like paddy's markets (in Australia) but MUCH better quality, at least in the way of sneakers and shoes. I recommend getting a kebab as well from Jumbo (but if you don't like kebabs, avoid the vendors who can be a bit full on).They do real kebabs (not the wraps we have in Australia) which have... More

You can find everything you could ever imagine at Ameyoko Shopping Street! From touristy keyrings and t-shirts to electronics, fresh fruit and fish, there's nothing you can't buy here! Best to experience in late afternoon and evening, as it is often not open earlier in the day. Directly across the street from Ueno station, it's definitely worth exploring!

Lots of different small vendors with a wide range of goods. From fresh seafood, dried foods to clothing. Definitely not the usual shops you see around tokyo. A must in ueno.

Easily found by just get yourself to Ueno subway station. Many restaurants nearby, shops which sell snacks, clothes, shoes, bags, fruits, masks etc. Just too many things to grab! Price is reasonable. Eat and buy all you can!

This is a narrow crowded alley that functions as a market for virtually anything from macadamia nuts to fresh sea food and socks and phone accessories. It is definitely worth an hour of your tourist time to stroll down the crowded alley and watch, smell, taste and even buy this or that. Vendors are rather nice (not the sort you'd... More

Ameyoko is a long narrow pedestrian shopping alley near Ueno station that is lined along both sides with little shops selling almost everything - super-fresh seafood, fruit, clothes, electronics, watches, plus there are tiny food stalls serving a variety of tasty food. We were there on a Sunday and it was packed, which sort of added to the carnival atmosphere,... More

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.
