Ameyoko (in Japanese; Ame Yoko アメ横) is a shopping area in the major city of Ueno in Tokyo Japan. Ameyoko is very close (just across a main street) to Ueno Station and is between Ueno Station and Uenookachimachi Station (the next station on the main JR loop around Tokyo).  Traditionally the area was known for selling candy. "Ame" in "Ameyoko" means candy and funny enough also is the first three letters in "America" because a lot of American products were sold here in a "black market" after World War 2.

Nowadays the area sells pretty much everything. There are fishmongers, bag shops, golf shops, bag shops... anything you need. However, one the the BEST things about Ameyoko is the small Sushi Bowl shops that have been popping up. You can get a great bowl of rice covered in your choice of Sashimi for an excellent price! Check out a Colorado Jones's "Travel Log" about eating in Ameyoko, Ueno Japan. There are two "main" streets in the Ameyoko area (shown on the map below in blue) but the whole area (back streets, side alleys) is much larger (area in light green on the map below) and you can find all kinds of cool little shops by just walking around.  There are many inexpensive... well, cheap places to get some very good food too!

Hotels & Lodging

Dormy Inn Akihabara

The Dormy in Akihabara is THE perfectly located to visit "Electric City", the biggest electronics mass group of shops in the world (a tech. freaks dream come true!).

Ryokan Sansuiso

This Japanese Inn ("Ryokan" in Japanese) is your very basic Japanese Inn type offering. They have simple rooms for very low prices in the semi out-of-the-way Gotanda district, but its major appeal is its close proximity to many other places.

Most tourists (Japanese and Foreigner) come for the shopping the the "Downtown Feel" of the old shopping area but I come for the "Chirashi Don"!! (Chirashi Don is sushi layed on top of rice in a bowl). Walk down the street a bit and you will see some (there are a few shops nestled amongst the shops). The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because everytime I go I have to wait in line for 15 min. but the sushi and price is outstanding!
