Ameyayokocho (abbreviated to “Ameyoko”) is one of the largest Asian markets where you can buy almost any products with great discounts. Name of the market resembles that these places traded sweets (ame) in Edo period. The second part of the name “Yoko” means “alley”.
Small shops are directly under the rails of the railway.
Visit Ameyoko to capture the lively atmosphere of old Tokyo, as vendors entice prospective buyers with their gabbled sales patter and loud cries.
