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 .

If you love boots and sneakers, this is your shopping haven. Shoes here are surprisingly cheap. I bought my asics sneakers at Mita Sneakers. at around 60 USD that will normally cost me around 100 USD. It is good to start at Ueno station and end at Ueno Okachimachi.

So much to explore in this area. You can literally spend an entire day here without running out of things to do or see. Great places to eat or do some cheap shopping. Don't forget to venture to some of the indoor shops under the train tracks!

There are plenty of things to look at and buy at theses markets. Reasonable prices and there is no pressure from stall holders.

I lived in Tokyo doring to 00s and would frequent this area. I always visit here everytime I visit Tokyo. It has such a mish-mash of everything. I really feel that there is something for everyone here, plus it is located close to Akihabara, Ueno-Okachimachi, Ueno Koen and Museums.

We stayed at a small hotel near Ueno Station and found this area close to the station. There must have been a hundred stalls and stores up and down the streets, selling everything from shoes to food. It was so much fun to walk around and sample some of the food, look for bargains, and enjoy the beehive of activity,... 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.
