It is really interesting that this area in Asakusa has alot of vendors selling food but you cant eat them while walking. You can only stand in one side of the shop and eat all the food that you have bought. I guess they dont...More

There are two streets in front of the Senso-ji temple. There are numerous souvenir shops, food shops, and gift shops. Some shops have food to try. They are very busy streets, but worth visiting before entering the temple.

Just a minute or two from Asakusa station you can reach Kaminarimon and the Nakamise Shopping Street directly behind it leading up to Sensoji Temple. Great place to look for souvenirs, traditional Japanese clothing, and sweets. Branching off from the street are covered streets with...More

Located in the entrance of Sensoji Temple. A great place to get souvenirs and snacks. We went here twice. The first time we went was too early, so there were many shop that had not opened yet. Therefore, we decided to come back again.

The long Nakamise-dori Street which runs for 250 meters and contains around 89 shops is fun to wander however many low quality items can be sold with high prices. Unless you do not negotiate and you find something you may not find anywhere else (which...More

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

Hi..Don't worry this market is always open since it's more merrier during public holidays. But the opening hours depend on the individual shops, usually daily from 9am to 7pm I guess.
Is this area open late on Dec 31?

Not sure. On the Japan-Talk site, John Spacey, a Canadian working as an Enterprise Architect in Tokyo, posted an article regarding Nakamise. There you can follow him and perhaps he might be able to answer your question.
What time do these stores open in the morning?

It varies, but close to 10 AM & the booths/stores close earlier than expected- perhaps 6-7 pm.
