Ameyoko is a street just running along Yamanote line from Okachimachi station to near Ueno station. There are many shops which sell food, fish, sporting goods, outfits, watches,cosmetics and so on. A lot of foreign travellers visit Ameyoko these days as well as Japanese shoppers. I come here to get coffee beans sometimes. Occasionally, I just pass by Ameyoko wallking from museums in Ueno park.
I suppose that most of the shops in Akihabara sell good-quality goods at low prices. But there are always exceptions. I have once bought some frozen mackerels at a fishmonger. After having a bite of the cooked fish, I stopped eating it. I damped the rest of the mackerels. Also I have seen few shops with the sign boards, saying “Closing sale”. Every time I pass the shops, I notice that they are still open in spite of the sign boards! Always closing sales!
Ameyoko might be fun for you to see the markets and feel the energy.
