What started as a black market back in the days of WWII, the Ameyoko open-air market in Tokyo’s Ueno district is still the place locals flock to for just about anything at an excellent price. Join a local guide on a virtual tour of this fascinating slice of the city, where you can haggle and bargain hunt to your heart’s content and end the day with great food and drinks at a local izakaya.
You’ll get a quick tour of Ameyoko, where over 400 stalls sell… just about everything! Be transported to the lively streets crowded with Tokyoites shopping for clothes, seafood, and pretty much every iconic Japanese street food imaginable, and let your guide pointing out some of the most popular street foods.
Curious about the Japanese bar scene for yourself? Once you’ve worked up an appetite (it won’t take long), you’ll get a front-row seat to the full izakaya experience where locals flock every night of the week. Your host will duck into one of the best bars and show you some typical snacks, from deliciously charred yakitori to fresh edamame, and a variety of local beers and sake. All this, and you won’t even have to ruin your diet!
