This building is located in the middle of the Ameyoko shopping street. There is an interesting wet market filled with shops at the basement selling fresh produce, meat, seafood, vegetables, etc.
It is very interesting to see the things on sold and how the sellers...More
This is more like a chinatown than tokyo. For countries that have Chinatowns, it is nothing special. Still, a good place to go to get some souvenirs. Do drop by at the stores selling Halal food - some rice & kebab!
Go to the second floor of the Ame Yoko Center Building and head in the direction of the entrance to the shopping street.
It's a perfect place for great photo ops of the market below!

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.
