If you are visiting Senso-Ji temple then you will not miss this street. This street has lots of small shops, foods, and restaurants. I would spend about 1-2 hours here. This is a must go if you are near the area.

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.

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.

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