A very nice place for shopping and food. A reasonably priced place for food and shopping. Probably can do lunch here and shop around thereafter. Conveniently located just outside of Ueno station. ( JR Yamanote line) You can find fashionable bags from say USD$30. Hence, my shopping was without any negotiation for prices. You will also find some smaller stores... More

Get off JR's Ueno station and walk south for few hundred feet and you are in the midst of this dense shopping "arcade" of myriad of shops... large, small, food, electronics, souvenirs, ice cream cones, clothes, watches, bags, belts, shoes, camera, hats, sunglasses, etc. Soon after the surrender of Japan after WWII, this area became the mecca of black market...

We were fortunate to stay at the Nonsmokers Hotel a block away from the area! It was fun to shop, listen to the hawkers, do some negotiations with the sellers. We enjoyed trying izakaya sticks of dubious proteins and enjoyed every bite of it with sochu! My son bought some Nike shoes that we were unable to tell if they... More

This is off the tourist trail and worth a visit if you like street markets. It's local fruit and fish stalls, clothes, some tea shops, and delicious food stalls. The Japanese speaking Turkish kebab shop owners were very friendly.

First of all, it s called Ameyayokocho, and not Ameyoko. It s fun To walk on it, typical street market that you find in all big cities of Asia with clothes, food and all kinds of crap.

A busy market street with lots of sellers shouting and eager to market their products. Could see many Chinese faces. The place reminded me of markets in other parts of Asia, much unlike the usual Japan markets. Wide slection of restaurants and cafes under the JR track.

This is definitely a fun street especially if you want to do some discount shopping. The best part of the street was having lunch at this seafood place, where I had a form of sashimi. There are lots of restaurants and shops with something for everybody.

This is an interesting place to walk around. Lots of shopping and dining options, but we didn't really eat or shop inside. The vendors are loud, and can get intimidating. There was a particular alley that we keep on ending at, with really brash vendors (not Japanese). They really come up to you, look you in the eye and talk... More
