Chanced upon this street while walking to the Ueno station from Ueno park. Quite an experience, I must say. Felt like I left the Tokyo for a moment and entered Namdaemun in Seoul (v. interesting feeling). They sell knock-offs, fresh seafood, and even puppies! And the store keepers will shout to get your attention too. Didn't buy a thing but... More

You can get all your shopping done in one afternoon if you are shopping with a budget. You can find everything here; shoes, cosmetics, skincare, food (fresh and dried), clothes, bags. You name it, they have it. This is a fun place to walk around for a couple of hours. After that, you might feel overloaded because of all the... More

It's a really busy shopping, pachinko, Japanese eateries kinda district. I would recommend coming here after your morning walk at Ueno park for a quick breakfast and some light snacks as you walk down the street checking out merchandise and the activity. There's lots of places to have dinner here too, and there's a very big sex shop on one... More

Ameyoko Cho (Ameyoko district) is heaving at most hours of the day. It's just opposite Ueno station main entrance and attracts many thousands of tourists of all nationalities. The stalls range from some of the best Japanese denim and embroidered jackets through shoes, watches, jewelry, cosmetics and to food. The stalls fill the streets and the alleyways in between. It's...

We did not have much time to look around the market, which was a shame. Stalls selling fresh fish and lovely ripe melon and strawberries on a stick, or 200 yen, per stick. There was also shoes gor sale and what might have been fake jewellery

Just few minutes walk from Ueno Park, this is my first time that we visit Ameyoko Shopping Street and I like it because my brother & I are sneakers lovers. There are many shops that sell cheap sneaker (Nike, Converse, Van, Onitsuka Tiger & etc) and some pattern we can’t find in other shop. We’re happy to be here, we... More

I visited Tokyo twice and also visited here twice. Because I could find fresh food and go shopping here. I could buy the cosmetics in the shop where I could refund tax .

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.
