This place is just packed, with locals and tourists. There were some shops for clothes and shoes and unless you need something, not a place to be unless you like crowd or looking for a bargain.

Ok. I was here 2 years ago and I thought the preserved food had passed its prime. I did find a carryon bag that has lasted 5 years. So I didn't expect much. Then I turned a corner and came across a bracelet maker who...More

The prices higher are much much better than in Nakamise street despite the latter being known as souvenir paradise. Come early in weekdays to avoid crowd.

The atmosphere and the open air restaurants are fun. Some of the shops are borderline scams. Frozen maguro (tuna) looks like Toro (the fat part of tuna) but is not so what appears to be a bargain is not.

An extremely crowded place. Quite difficult to look around for things. There’s a good beef katsu place though.

This place is a long strip of market stalls, we spent about an hour here. Lots of souvenirs available here. Lucky for us it wasn't over crowded on a weekday

Quite different way of selling goods. Similar to Namdaemun market in Seoul but more cozy. I just walked around the main street not getting in the buildings both sides. Good to visit combining with uneo park visit.

This is a busy street and filled with a lot of shops selling fruit, food, souvenirs, seafood, clothing etc. It's all under one roof but I find that the souvenirs are more expensive when compared to shops at Asakusa. Good place to visit since it...More

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
