Shopping street with many souvenirs shops along an outdoor market between the sensoji temple and the Hozomon gate. Very touristy and crowded, but good for some gifts to bring back home.

After exploring the original Nakamise Shopping Street, I ventured into Shin Nakamise Shopping Street, which runs perpendicular to the former. I was disappointed. It totally lacked the traditional feel of Nakamise Shopping Street, was less busy, and had less inspiring shops and boutiques. Still, it...More

About 80m from the start of Nakamise Shopping Street, this street runs perpendicular on both sides to the Nakamise Shopping Street. It is a covered shopping arcade, but much shorter. It is less popular compared to the main Nakamise Shopping Street.

Super crowded even on weekdays. Popular with tourists with a direct path leading to Sensoji Temple. Good place to spend some time browsing through the many varieties of goods but I think mainly is for tourists to buy some souvenirs back home.

Good visit, the street is adjacent to the temple and has a lot of options for shopping. It's really crowded on Friday evening but still worth the visit!.

From hair pins to souvenirs to coffee or cute bags there is something for everyone. Located in the heart of Asakusa this is a must see destination for tourists, along with the river and temples. Easily accessible on the train.

Great shopping for souvenirs from Japanese traditional dress and Japanese delicacies to lovely silk products. The Makamise Market resembles a traditional style shopping street of a bygone era.

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
