every country has its own “Petaling Street” and eventhough it’s not the most glamourous looking street in a city, it’s always a very popular tourist spot. but instead of thinking that you’d have to travel all the way to Ueno just for one thing, you’re wrong.
it’s completely hitting 2 birds with 1 stone. for the first attraction in Ueno, I’ll be telling you about Ameyokocho. so wait up for the other post. it will probably surprise you much =D.
the huge Ueno station. one of the huge stations in Tokyo. but this one, filled with PANDAS!
there’s a park(zoo) in Ueno with Pandas but unfortunately my mom doesn’t want to go because we heard that it’ll take up at least half of our day there.
so as you can see, Ueno is really proud of their Pandas =D. and after exiting Ueno station, you’d probably see this across the street.
the row of shops with a huge number of Pachinko shops. Pachinko’s are gambling shops. with er.. little round metal balls. no idea how they do it since I don’t encourage gambling.
the wide zebra crossing!
you get what I mean by WIDEEE?
and by the way, that’s not Ameyokocho yet. but just walk on it. on the second right turn after entering the street, turn left, and walk across the train tracks. and you’ll find yourself at Ameyoko.
well errrr, there’s two ways to get there quick. here’s the direction map to Ameyoko
clear enough? teehee.
I took way 1 to go and way 2 back. haha.
our city lacks of these. a very good way to be as eco friendly as possible. BICYCLES!!
there are quite a few of these conveyor belt sushi shops. or the Americans call it hole-in-the-wall-sushi. hahahaha which I find absolutely amusing. =P.
the trtuh is, I took a picture of this because I want to have a list of what certain sushis are called. =D.
the more traditional looking restaurants. love these type! =3. but the prices are not so traditional though T_T.
look at how fake the real Sakuras look like!
unfortunately when I went it wasn’t the sakura season yet so there were very little sakura flowers. but I wonder.. where does Sakura trees get their nutrients if they don’t have leaves?!
AMEYOKOCHO! actually, they seriously sell everything. food, vege, fish, clothes, junks, things…. everything. it is a part of Japan less seen. well, let the picture do its work for your understanding =D.
dry food stall. everything that’s dried up. you can find it here.
can you imagine what if spiders have legs this huge. it’ll scare all my wits away wth. they belong to the Alaskas king crab. to be honest, I do not fancy these crabs so much. it’s pretty soft in texture and if eaten grilled without seasoning, it has a
strong taste of the.. sea. at some point I like crabs like these. but as of now.. no. but really, one crab leg is filling enough.
but those crab legs costs like RM40-RM240(!!!!!!! just for its legs?! you must be freaking kidding me).
discounted seafood hahaha. I am pretty sure things here are bargainable. so if you have the heart to buy it, no harm trying =D.
RM240 for this large piece of tentacle!
this is where Ameyoko splits. whatever it is.. WALK THROUGH IT ALL! see that little ice cream there? =3.
TEEHEE! PEACH ICE CREAM! oh did I tell you how amazing Japanese peach products are? they literally have everything in peach flavour. you can find it ANYWHERE. yum yum.
RM10 or 250yen for a cone of ice cream. you know it isn’t worth it. but you know you want it. =/.
I heard Malay food was damn expensive in Japan. but RM20 for kebab.. still not as bad as what I heard, RM40 for roti canai wth.
how old people in Japan makes their cake. with machinese!
if you think you hate parks/temples, it’s okay if you skip this spot. but if you’re already planning to go over to Ueno Park. seriously, WHY NOT DROP BY?!
