Ameya Yokocho Shopping Street (Ueno Ame-Yoko Shotengai) is one of the most well-known districts of the Ueno area. Among the bustling energy of the streets and a myriad of stores, visitors can enjoy shopping for souvenirs, lifestyle goods, fresh produce, and much more!

Ameya Yokocho Street is always a popular destination for tourists, but the month leading up to the new year is an especially energy-filled time for the street, as people rush to stock up on ingredients for new year’s eve.

The street also has many casual taverns and restaurants, making it a great place to stop by after a good time at Ueno Zoo, or the many museums and galleries in the Ueno area.
