There aren’t too many open air street flea markets in Tokyo anymore, but Ameya-Yokochō located in Ueno district, is one of the few remaining. It’s a market where you’ll find everything and anything - from a fresh wet market to shoes and cosmetics, all open air, and under the Ueno railroad tracks. It also happens to be a great place to sample some budget Japanese street food in Tokyo.
Here’s what I ate on this tour of Ameya-Yokochō Market:
Chirashi don - sashimi rice bowl, quality is not the best, but it is quite budget Total price - 1,750 JPY ($15.92) for 2
Oyama Meat Pie - this is a little gem, it’s like a little deep fried meat patty - so greasy and so good. Price - 200 JPY ($1.82)
Izakaya Hamachan - Throughout the market you’ll find plenty of little izakaya’s, Japanese pubs, where you can grab a drink and some food. They are great places to hang out when you’re exploring the food at the market. Total price - 2,743 JPY ($24.96)
Taiyaki and ice cream - These are two of the most popular Japanese street food sweet snacks. The taiyaki wasn’t the best I’ve had, but the ice cream was quite nice. Price - 450 JPY ($4.09)
Jumbo Kebab - Believe it or not, doner kebabs are actually one of the most popular street foods to eat at Ameya-Yokochō Market, and I saw mostly Japanese people eating doner kebabs. I ordered the super spicy hot sauce with my doner, and it was just the perfect spicy ending to this street food tour! Price - 500 JPY ($4.55)
