This is a super busy shopping area for Tokyo people. It has lots of items interesting for tourists as well, eg, Kimonas, food stands everywhere and supermarket foods as well. It's a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon, and the subway is near
Not far from the Senso-ji temple there is this great covered street , superb on rainy days, full of shops for shopping and for souvenirs.
You can also find excellent restaurants with prices that are not always expensive
We walked through on our first day in Tokyo. My kids really liked looking at all the different store and offerings. They were really intrigued by the 'fish game' they saw here. The covering makes it convenient when it is rainy.
We were taken by a Rickshaw driver for approximately 30 minutes ride around this delightful area. So many different shops selling not only the usual tourist souvenirs but also plenty of quirky items. This area can become quite busy but great to experience.
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.
