Ameyoko (アメ横) is a busy market street along the Yamanote Line tracks between Okachimachi and Ueno Stations. The name “Ameyoko” is a short form for “Ameya Yokocho” (candy store alley), as candies were traditionally sold there. Alternatively, “Ame” also stands for “America”, because a lot of American products used to be available there when the street was the site of a black market in the years following World War Two.
Today, various products such as clothes, bags, cosmetics, fresh fish, dried food and spices are sold along Ameyoko.
The last time I was here was almost 2 years ago.

Farewell dinner with my sister and brother in law as they were taking the midnight flight from Haneda where the rest of the family departed in the evening via Narita. Brought them to a local izakaya, called Hakata Mangetsu for some hot pot and yakitori.
