Ame Yoko is the an old traditional market known as Kitchen of Tokyo. The energetic calling of store staff is a famous sight to experience.
The street is full of food and clothing and accessory stores. It is always full of people with different purposes of visit.
At the end of the year, many people come to prepare dishes for the new year to come.
It is a bit caotic as there are very small streets full of shops as well. But the price seems reasonable.
Even the restraunts and bars have history on it’s own and the atomosphere has been the same more than 50-60 years.
Perfect place to see the mixture of old tradtion with history with something modern and new. This is Tokyo.
