Go and visit the market on the same day you're visiting Ueno park. There are many nice restaurants around and things to eat at the market.

Walked through Ameyoko shopping street at ueno. Came out from Keisei-ueno station. Cross junction. Many good and affordable stuff. Cheaper than other shopping streets. Also several kebab dining outlets. Also many eating outlets nearby. We made a mistake by trying to go to eatries at Ueno park. Long q and limited choices. Head towards Ameyoko, more choices.

Very crowded shopping street, can see both the local and tourists shopping there, even the seafood and vegetables are sold here. If you don't have much time to spend on shopping then I would suggest that you skip this place.

I came to this place after a stroll through Ueno park. This is a crowded street where you can buy cheap souvenirs, food, gonto purikura booth stores, all next to the train station. Very crowded, beware.

Lots of shops and stalls to browse; there are also some stalls selling fresh food at one of the ends. There is a games arcade somewhere in the middle of the street to deposit your children while you shop. Great time to spend 2-4 hours if you are around the area, or visiting the nearby park.

This place gives you a wide variety of shopping and eating options; which also has a 24-7 sashimi place with a reasonably priced menu. From 1500¥ Japanese dolls, to 10000¥ tip top quality leather gloves, fresh seaweeds and fruits; or simply drop by for a photography day trip, this place has so much to offer.

It is a very busy and crowded shopping area, full of locals as well as visitors. It is located just outside Ueno Station. The place is full of low priced eating outlets. I did not try out the food but the seating environment is not appealing. The shops and the market stalls lining the streets sell all kinds of food... 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.
