Ameyoko street market reminds me of places like Mongkok in Hongkong and Sinchon in Seoul. This market sells a variety of products from food, fruits to your fashion accessories. It is located near Ueno JR train station. I love street food and people watching, it's such a nice experience.

Note that it can get very crowded in the day. Ichiran ramen and other japanese cuisine eateries are just nearby at Ueno Atre. We walked around and found a gem for serving very awesome juicy gyoza. Worth a visit if you like street markets! Tokyo day 1! http://jacqsowhat.blogspot.sg/2014/03/tokyo-japan-day-1-ameyoko-street-tokyo.html

A market selling a broad range of products, from fresh seafood to bags and cosmetics. There are convenience stores here and there, and it was really packed. There are also food vendors where people sit just outside the store and eat away. We were so tempted to try out one of the kebab store because it smelled so good. We also bought one huge tako back, and it was bigger than one palm size! Yuum!

This market is located under the elevated train tracks leading to the Ueno Train Station and several blocks surrounding it. Among it's offerings are fresh fruit, fresh seafood and fish, groceries, spices, t-shirts, clothing, jewelry, western (cowboy) wear, Anime, tattoos, restaurants, bars, and Pachinko parlours. On a Sunday afternoon, if the weather is fine, the area can be very crowded, but this should not detract you from visiting. The residents of Tokyo that come to this area are not in a hurry and there is little jostling. The goods are what you would expect from a street market, but the food is very fresh. It's definitely a cultural experience!

Very crowded, many shops selling almost the same. Prices are almost the same as in the regular shops. I am not sure about the quality of the sold articles, specially shoes and clothes, could be fakes.

It reminded me the night market at Mong Kok, Hong Kong (女人街). Besides cheap clothings, fake brand-named shoes and handbags, there are seafood stores selling both fresh and dry seafood. There are also lots of restaurants. They all looked good and cheap prices, so it was hard for us to decide which one to go to. You will have fund there and won't be disappointed.
