Fodor's Review

Everything from fresh fish to cheap import clothing is for sale at this bustling warren of side streets between Okachi-machi and Ueno stations. In the days leading up to New Year's, the area turns into mosh-pit mayhem as shoppers fight for fish and snacks to serve over the holidays. The official name of the market is Ameya-Yoko-cho but is almost always shortened to Ameyoko.
