Ameyayokocho is an open-air market in the Ueno district of Tokyo, steps from the JR Ueno train station.
This narrow shopping street is located under and along the west side of the elevated tracks of the JR Yamanote Line between Ueno and Okachimachi stations.
Originally a wholesale market for candy and snacks, it became a black market after World War II for U.S. Army goods.
Today, this popular open-air market consists of hundreds of stalls and shops selling at a discount everything from fish and vegetables to …
… shoes, handbags, cosmetics, and clothes.
Of course, you can also find all different types of food to eat if you are hungry after a day of shopping.
And this is my favorite type of store … a golf store!
So if you are looking for some cheap shopping in Tokyo, visit the Ameyayokocho market in Ueno.
