Shopping Street

This shopping street stretches about 500 meters between JR Ueno Station and JR Okachimachi Station, and it is home to around 400 shops.
The shops are widely varied, including ones selling food, sweets, clothing, general goods, and jewelry. The street’s shops are open year-round with great prices, so the lively atmosphere makes it feel like the old-timey Shitamachi area of Tokyo.
There are even plenty of food stalls and restaurants where you can enjoy cheap and delicious food.
The area is packed with visitors, both locals and tourists, every day, but it’s even more crowded around the New Year’s holidays when people come to buy New Year’s items.

Highlights

  • A shopping street packed with visitors, both locals and foreign tourists

    每次去東京都會順道去的地方,還有附近的多慶屋裏面也很好買

    和迪化街年貨大街感覺很像,逛起來很有意思

    旅行最後一站,推薦可以安排來阿美橫町,回國前還沒買齊的,全部可以在這完成。

    交通相當便利,觀光客常常去的地方,商品包羅萬象應有盡有,但是需注意有些店家訂價偏高,要事先做好功課

    在這裏吃喝玩樂一整天逛不完,東西價格比其他地區便宜很好買,該有的阿美橫丁都買得到
