It is a fun place to walk around and maybe get some fruits, but don't expect quality clothes, nice souvenirs or bargains. It's actually kind of cheap looking, however, the atmosphere and street food is great.

We find a lot of good comment on this street on our guide book. However the "local" market taste is wuite gone as you can only see shop with sales and few shop with dehydrated food...

Across the street from Ueno Park - and you have to pass the street to get to the park! It's a no brainer to make a detour through the shopping street. Lots of delicious food to buy and eat or buy and take away. Lots of delicious sweets - from convenience store candy to red bean filled mochi. Be sure... More

Ameyoko shopping street is a very busy and crowded street market. It is very accessible to walk to from the station. Stores are a mixture of clothing, bag, accessories and fish stores. I went in search of a Sukajan jacket store, FITS, who have two market stalls in Ameyoko. I ended up paying an arm and a leg for a... More

You can get lots of different dried seafood snacks for souvenirs as well as restaurant along the street. There is also shopping centre nearby, I find the pricing here is cheaper than kitsuji market and harajyuku.

Don't know where the market starts, maybe from the gate next to railway. First thing first, buy that kebab in the front (Jumbo Domer Kebab), very delicious! The seller gave us more meat :) Anyway, Ameyoko is local market next to Ueno Station. You can buy cheap stuff here, sometime they gave you great deal. Not many but you can... More

It doesn't offer much unique merchandise but the price is usually fair. The groceries and food are okay, but don't go crazy. It's still great to come here and get a feel of local market. Easily accessible, a couple of shopping arcades and department stores nearby as well.

Made our 5th and maybe last pilgrimage to our diehard shopping shrine in Ameyoko. Since our first visit years back, noticed the market has gradually diminished its Japanese market authenticity and this trip was the worst as we felt overwhelmed by the tsunami of foreign tourists, burly foreign salesmen and lackluster / tired product offerings. The only reason I gave... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
