Based on tour book descriptions, thought this would be a collection of tourist-oriented shops. While there are plenty of those, it's clear that local residents shop here, too, with the many clothing/fresh food/seafood shops. It's busy, but offers a true slice of life of the...More

Lots of good food choices and inexpensive souvenirs. While I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit if you are close by or visiting Ueno Park you can find something to your liking.

Ameyoko market is located very near Ueno station. When you go out on Exit 7 of the Ginza Line, you can see it immediately. They sell souvenirs, they have lots of street food and they also have a lot of good small restaurants.

It's a grand market if you're passing by but I wouldn't bother trekking here. Mainly food stalls, food markets here. Expected a better range of clothes etc

This is the place which is just a stone thrown away from Ueno station. If you are chocolates, Japanese snacks, tea lovers, you must visit the wholesale shops (cash term only) in this street as the prices offered were so far the cheapest as compared...More

Ameyoko is the place where you can find Japanese cosmetic brands such as Shiseido, SK2, Kose at price fraction than department store. You can also ask for tax free. Location is across the street of Ueno station.

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
