This place has lots of variety of Japanese food, specially donburi (raw fish on rice). There are a few ramen and gyoza restaurants too. You can also find lots of other stuff in Ameyoko too like bags, wallets as well as raw fish. Ameyoko is a must visit place in Ueno, just 5 mins walk from the station.

This area is famous for it's cheap goodies, and nice foods. HALAL FOOD also available. Once a black market area, no wonder it still famous for it's cheap goodies, from sneakers, jacket, sweater, bag, anything! Just a minute away from Ueno Station.

Popular place to go in Ueno, i guess this place doesn't need much introduction. Basically you can find varieties of food and a place to buy food-based souvenirs. Good place to go for shopping.

This place is much like markets you would see in Thailand or Bali, but the goods seem to be legit and also carry a higher price tag. Lots going on, lots of signs you cant read that you know arw for sales but if you cant read Japanese you dont really have a clue what is what. Lots of vendors... More

Street lined with various shops, like clothes and bags and shoes and many more at bargain prices with extra discount for tax free for foreigners. With a big shop for cheap goodies to take home.

Street market with lots of cheap goods like sneakers and bags, nice street food and even fresh seafood. For Muslims, there are about 3-4 halal kebabs and chicken stalls in the market so no worries.

Shops and market type stalls line the street which heaves with people. Don't expect bargains though, prices by UK standards (and probably US ones as well) are expensive. It is a bit of fun and a flavour of local culture.

Ameyoko shopping street is located at Asakusa close to Ueno Park. Everything are available here and of course with cheapest price but quality is ok. You need to try for shopping here.

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.
