This is quite a long walking street with the usual foods, clothing shops, souvenirs, pharmacies, etc on either side. Prices were not that cheap. Most people were buying food and eating it while they walked. It's a much noisier market which adds to the charm.

I think this area is too full of foreigners that the sellers tend to forget their hospitality towards guests. They do not treat foreigners in respectable manners and you can see the double standard between locals and foreigners. I have been here so many times...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
