Ameyoko, Ueno’s lively shopping strip, is well-known as one of the city’s defining locations, attracting large crowds on weekends. Ameyoko began as a black market during WWII, but it has since evolved into a popular shopping district with a lively ambiance. The market is appealing because of its low costs and large selection of things for sale.

Everything from fresh groceries to clothing and cosmetics may be found here. There are also numerous food vendors lining Ameyoko. Those with a sweet tooth should try matcha ice cream at Cha no Kiminoen or dorayaki, a classic Japanese confection filled with red bean paste.
