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

We didnt really buy anything here, but just wondering around is quite fun. It does get busy at certain times though.

I think that this is as far away as you can get from the civil, whispering Japanese society as you can get in Tokyo. The vendors are loud and brash, laughing and talking loudly. The crowds are an exotic mix of peoples from everywhere. The shopping is wonderful, the food is amazing. I had a very good experience. This is... More

When in Tokyo never miss this place. Its in Ueno very near main station. Good place to shop and eat. Tokyo is expensive enough to tour around. No need to shop at Ginza, Shibuya, or Roppongi. Ameyoko is just under the track of train from Ueno station. Its endless shops and stalls. Short walk from our hotel, Mitsui Garden Hotel.
