Full of locals, full of tourists, and everybody seems to be buying something. Anything I can get for you?

If I am not wrong, this is the Chinatown. The shops sells almost anything, from toys, to food, to clothes, to shoes, to anything. You can get easy access from Ueno station. But not good for wet weather as there is no shelter.

Outside of Ueno station there's several pedestrian streets filled with these. Kind of like a combination of Tsukiji market and Shibuya. Fun to spend few hours walking around. Crowd gets bigger as the day goes on.

It's a street market so food is eaten on stools outside the shop many different kinds of items from clothing, bags, luggage, to shoes. Prices are fairly cheap and it's a great experience close to Ueno Station and across Ueno Park.

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
