Tokyo Street Food Tour in Ameya Yokocho Market in Ueno Japan. Ameya-yokochō aka Ameyoko Street Food Market is a Japanese Street food area in Tokyo. This Tokyo Food Guide will show you my Top 7 Street Food Spots in Ameyoko Market. There are many Tokyo Street Food areas, but what sets Ameya Yokocho Market from the rest of the Japanese street food markets in Tokyo is that it has a healthy mix of international foods, especially Chinese food. The Ameyoko Food is one of a kind and Japan tourists and travelers of all ages will enjoy the unique market food offerings as well as the market style atmosphere. Ameyoko Food Tours are common, but I would like to share with you my favorite food spots in this What to Eat Guide in Tokyo Ueno Ameya Yokocho. We try Chinese Oden, Sho ron tan pao, Fresh seafood crab, Yaki Shoronpo, Korean Cheese Hot Dog, Takoyaki and Menchi Katsu.
Ameya-Yokochō (アメヤ横丁 Ameya alley) is an open-air market in the Taito Ward of Tokyo, Japan, located next to Ueno Station.The market is approximately 164,227 square feet in area, starting just behind the Yodobashi Camera building and following the Yamanote Line south until the Komuro building.
There are two theories on the etymology of Ameya. The first is that the name came from ameya (飴屋 candy shop), because of all the candy stores that lined the street in the early post-war era when sugar was hard to come by. Even now, there are stores selling candy there. The second theory is that it refers to アメリカ(America); there used to be stores selling surplus American army goods just after World War II. In either case, it is now commonly referred to simply as ameyoko (アメ横).
The market is home to over one hundred and eighty one shops, which sell products ranging from fresh food and fish to clothing and time pieces.
Traditional Ueno is known for its ornate shrines, including 17th-century Benzaiten temple, which stands on an island in Ueno Park. Nearby, the open-air Ameya-Yokochō market sells a vast range of food, clothes and accessories.
