Early morning in the market street of Ameyoko in Tokyo

 

AMEYOKO, UENO / TOKYO 2011 [上野アメ横/東京]

 

 

Watch as stall owners set up shop in the early morning along Tokyo’s busy market street of Ameyoko, which lies between Okachimachi and Ueno Stations. The name translates as “Candy Store Alley” as candy was originally sold here, with everything from clothing to books, dried foods and fresh fish found today.
