Heaps of shoe stores, even with brands like Crocs and Birkenstocks. If you're lucky they're clearing out stock and you can find pairs for 500yen. Heaps of izakayas and food stalls and hidden restaurants on higher levels.

Enough of shopping at the big Japanese departmental stores? Try Ameyoko and you might find yourself some bargain. From fashion to shoes to food, you can find all of them here. We stopped by Tsukiji Gindaco shop for some delicious takoyaki (Japanese octopus balls), real yummy.

The place is quite cramped yet interesting just like in Bangkok. What boggling place to stroll and get whatever you like. There are small stalls selling snacks, crackers, and,sliced fruits for 100-200¥.

This is a eclectic shopping area that has restaurants and hundreds stores to buy anything from fish to backpacks. Our favorite find was a sushi bar that served it like a conveyor. The sushi was excellent and very reasonably priced. You can spend hours here so allocate no less than one half a day, even more if the weather is... 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.
