Great area to buy your souvenirs. I think prices are on the higher end and you can get most of the same stuff down the road at Don Quixote for the fraction of the cost. But this area has a nice vibe so I'd go...More

I was here during the cherry blossoms season, sakura, so it was super busy. I can imagine it being the same throughout the year though as Asakusa houses the oldest temple in Tokyo. This street is a great place to buy little trinkets, dress up...More

Shopping stalls lined up along the path from the Thunder Gate to the Senso-Ji temple. Items are not cheap and varieties of things sold are limited. But considering it's just infront of the famous Senso-Ji temple, it's still worth a visit (~30-60 mins).

Tried quite a few tasty street food here. Soy doughnut, quail egg octopus, yakitori and Takoyaki. Not bad! It was a weekday but still pretty crowded. Be prepared!

In this street we can find souvenirs, clothings and food. This street is well-known as travel bureaus used to bring tourists here.

This shopping strip leads from Sensi-ji temple and it is chaotic. Went here twice for temple visit and best place to buy souvenirs. Be warned though...prices for same items can vary a bit and it all adds up in yen! Many shops and restaurants/street food....More

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

Hi..Don't worry this market is always open since it's more merrier during public holidays. But the opening hours depend on the individual shops, usually daily from 9am to 7pm I guess.

Not sure. On the Japan-Talk site, John Spacey, a Canadian working as an Enterprise Architect in Tokyo, posted an article regarding Nakamise. There you can follow him and perhaps he might be able to answer your question.

It varies, but close to 10 AM & the booths/stores close earlier than expected- perhaps 6-7 pm.
