Lots of food stalls and restaurants, plus stalls with all kinds of stuff for sale (fresh fish and food during the day; clothes and shoes and luggage at night. This is not just one street but rather, between 10-20. Ate at Small Japanese restaurants but one of my favorite foods was the kabobs and other middle eastern food at the... More

Located right across the Ueno station and a short walk from Akihabara is Ameyoko shopping street. They sell everything from clothes, shoes, perfume, toys to antique watches. The place is a sensory overload and there is so much to take in. It is also a good place to do souvenir and token shopping for friends and relatives back home. Ameyoko... More

Located right opposite the UENO station. A must-go shopping street where you can get cheap sports apparel (depending on season), snacks and huge variety of food stalls. A little advise on food stalls: If you see a food stall with all local/ Nihonjin around, most likely you wont be able to get authentic japanese food there. Try to refrain from... More

When planning our trip to Tokyo we read good reviews and recommendations about this so called Candy Alley. Unfortunately this place is in fact a mix bag of different vendors selling various low quality foods/products. There were only about 3 stores selling 'candies' so we are a bit baffled by why it is called Candy Alley. Rather disappointed. It is... More

This area is very different from other parts of Japan. It's noisy, as it's near the train tracks, plus the seller of some stalls actually shouted loudly to sell/promote their items. However this is a perfect place to buy Japanese snacks, as there are 2 huge supermarket. Point to note : please check the expiry date of the food items,... More

Ueno Ameyoko is basically a busy shopping labyrinth. It consists of many clothing shops, shoe shops, izakayas (Japanese pubs) and yatais (street vendors). Nothing really fancy, but it's quite vibrant, therefore, it's busy. I didn't find many shops and restaurants very cheap. Plus most items such as shoes, bags and clothes are imported stuff with US or European brands: for... More
