Tokyo Street Photos That I Love: #Ameyoko (#アメ横)


You might have already known that I, a blogger of LightPocket, am a photographer specializing in Tokyo, and taking pics of this city for years.

In this “Tokyo Street Photos” series, I’ve curated great pictures of Tokyo by the photographers/strollers I come across through everyday netsurfin.

This time, photos I’ve selected for this post are taken from Ameyoko.

Ameyoko, or Ameya alley, is an open-air street-side shopping district lies between JR East Okachimachi Station and Ueno Station in Taito Ward, Tokyo. It ranges about 500 meters, having various 400 shops. Every year, in this season, Ameyoko is crowded with quite a lot of people for shopping for year-end/New Year.

Hope you’ll like it, and hope they would be new goals of your travel in Japan.

Who is me? Oh, sorry.

My name is heion, and have been posted through various social network pages: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.

Oh, if you come to Japan and get around places to take a photo like them.
Don’t forget to rent a pocket WiFi router or a data SIM card, which will support your works very strongly.
