#TOKYO brings you travel trends based on social media posts written by experienced travelers. Today is part 2 of the virtual Ueno tour. We'll begin at Shinobazu Exit and explore over 400 shops in the Ameyoko area. It used to be a black market post war that sold candies and US military surplus items. It came to be called "Ameyoko" from candy (="ame") and America. The central building carries unusual ingredients such as spices from around the world and fish/frog from tropical areas. With Tokyo's oldest Koreatown and jewelry district by Indian owners, you'll encounter people from different backgrounds and religions.
