Ameyoko アメ横

Tokyo’s former black market, still a bargain haven.

Ameyoko is a shopping district where about 400 shops jam in 500 meters long under the girder bridge from JR Ueno station to Okachimachi station. It is a lively market which had been developed since the post-war period and originated from street stalls run by local people.

There are stores selling food, clothes, knick-knacks, jewelry items, etc. Besides dishes which Japanese have in daily life, you can enjoy seeing the way of selling as tons of snacks and sweets are sold with one package. Tokyo is expensive, but in Ameyoko, you can find bargains on almost everything. Enjoy lively shopping here.

Ameyoko is conveniently located on the JR Yamanote Line, with access to the Keihin-Tohoku Line and the Ginza, Hibiya, Oedo, and Keisei subway lines.
