This shopping street is near to Ueno station and is suggested by the Tokyo guidebook as one of the "must see" but it is a real disappointment. There are narrow streets packed with shops selling (mostly) cheap Chinese junk. Living in Africa, I always heard my African colleagues complaining about Chinese hawkers in Africa, to my amusement, there are many... More

Although Japanese people don't speak loudly usually, Ameyoko shopping street is full of Japanese and Chinese sellers who try to attract visitors by inviting them to check their merchandise. The street is always full of tourists (Japanese and foreigners), so you should be in the mood for it :)

If your are looking for halal foods, Ameyoko street is the answer. It is easy to find good halal food here such as Turkish kebab and chicken rice. Reasonable price and very good portion. Beside that, many came here to shop for clothes, fashion products, groceries, house hold, electronics and many other things. Just a minute walk from Ueno station,... More

A narrow street near Ueno station which is full of hawkers shouting out to purchase their wares. Clothing, food, ornaments. The feel of an old style market place now rare in Japan.

My travel partner and I were lucky to have a local take us here after our visit to Ueno Park. I found these shopping streets fascinating both in the products displayed and the people shopping. Yes, they want tourists to shop here, but that's half the fun! Being able to haggle over prices was great and we bought Japanese fans... More

A great, fun, manic market area full of people. Good for some denim, jewellery and other clothes but worth doing a little research and be prepared to haggle a little. Also good for street food including fresh fruit on sticks, a great little refreshment (I can't go past pineapple). Not a place for people who don't like crowds. Close to... More

good place and not too much different from areas like Tsukiji but with much more different food and just as many shops. Just hang on to your wallets since there can be some opportunistic people here!

Tourist trap … Use your precious time properly! I would rather ride a boat on Ueno Shinobazu pond than being pushed about on Ameyoko streets.

This is the place if you're looking for cheap bargains and souvenirs. Some shops are even tax-free. There's also a shrine/temple in the midst of the street which is worth a short stop.

I love the hustle and bustle of Ameyoko. This marketplace is lined up of several streets full of people shopping around. You can find anything from sneakers to toys to seafood to takoyaki here. They have American goods as well and some pretty dank Japanese street food. Some good restaurant shops are here and you can tell they're good from... More
