Complete mix of the inevitable tourist trap tat shops but also proper shops catering to Japanese residents and visitors. Traditional Nara specialities, food, shoes, knives, tea and beautiful fabrics. The wonderful Daiso and good supermarkets. Did pretty much all my shopping for the trip here.

If you find Tokyo is expensive, come to Ameyoko and you will be pleasantly surprised. Highlights are a roadside stall with sashimi don, Niki shop for snacks and food. Shop till you drop!

Started life as an American Army surplus disposal area. Now much the same as many other shopping/market streets in Asia, you can buy anything around this area with plenty of food/drink restaurants and bars. Call in if in the area but don't make a special trip. Near Uneo station or use the Sky Tours hop on/off bus.

This street is nothing but a local market with nothing worth noticing about it, Just some seafood shops and others, it's not worth going to.

There must be a kilometre of shoes, clothing and dodgy looking street food here. The only good thing is you aren't hassled by street vendors as in other Asian countries.

This is a great street to explore if you want to see where the locals shop. You can buy just about anything here. There is food, clothing and all sorts of implements available for sale. The street is very close to the Ueno subway station. We managed to visit this street and then go on to the Senso-ji temple and... More

You can find any kind of shop in Ameyayokocho and as it is close to Ueno Park there is a light transfer from relaxing to strolling, however from small fast food restaurants to the fine-dining this shopping street offers restaurants which your feeling of taste will have the best of moments. We liked the neighbourhood so much, we had our... 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.
