Love it for the dining experience

Went here trying to shop for stuff but it's not really worth it. It's more junk and knock offs. But I did enjoy dining here. They have eating places or izakayas where you can have... read more

For die hard shoppers. From shoes, to clothing, bags, everyday necessities and reasonably priced souvenirs. Allow enough time to peruse the alleys and eat some great food.

There are hundreds of shops, stalls and restaurants waiting to be checked out. Food (anything from raw fish to chocolate-coated Polish prunes), clothing (including second-hand military wear from far-away places such as Germany and Sweden), cosmetics, watches, bags and souvenirs etc. etc. Note that many shops/stalls close around 8 p.m.

Get off JR at Okachimachi and you will find the bustlings streets just a few steps away! Advise to go earlier in the day. Can get very crowded. A lot of shops selling items ranging from dried seafood/seaweed, perfumes/cosmetics, mushrooms, fruits, clothing,shoes, etc. Ready to eat freshly cut fruit on a stick only about $1-2. They offer food stalls such... More

Everything in one place : foods, clothes, souvenier, shoes, handbags and the best part is they have a discount on this item. Cheaper than anywhere in Tokyo. Must visit!!!

Awesome local shopping. If you want to avoid the brand shops and buy local than Ameya Yokocho market is for you. Lots of stuff like wearables, t-shirts, shoes, hand bags and suitcases. Lots of places to eat as well. Great fresh Ramen noodles made on the spot.

This was a short walk from Ueno station and its definitely one of the best markets ive been to in Japan. So many food stalls and lots of different items can be found. There was more foreigners selling things than i expected but its still worth having a look

I know this place after I'm browsing about Ueno, that is my first destination after landing in Narita. Ameyoko is quite-large shopping street where you can get almost anything start from Japanese food like ramen and sushi, discounted goods such as shoes and jacket, dried foods (mostly seafood), souvenirs, and even sport goods. Easy to find. Atmosphere was good. Nice... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
