Travel Guide - Ameya Yokocho (Ameyoko)

InformationInformation

Located along the JR line tracks between Ueno Station and Okachimachi Station, Ameya Yokocho (generally called by its abbreviated name, Ameyoko) is a maze of busy open-air market where some 500 shops vie with each other. It was famous as a black-market district after the World War II, and is still a lively shopping area where many bargains can be found.
The variety of goods on sale is massive, such as fresh fishes and vegetables, clothes, shoes, jewelry, watches, cosmetics and even brand-name products. Bargaining is allowed in some stores, making a visit all the more enjoyable. Shopkeepers are much less restrained than elsewhere in Tokyo, attracting customers with raucous cries that resound throughout the crowded alleyways.
The sight of Ameyoko during the year-end, bustling with people shopping in preparation for New Year, has become a seasonal tradition.
