Okachimachi is located mere blocks away from Tokyo’s Ueno Station and the Akihabara area. It is primarily known for its fabulous variety of shopping and food. Looking for a street snack? How about some bargain shoes? In either case, head to the famous Ameyokocho (former black market); you’ll find those and much, much more. Okachimachi is also home to over 150 jewelery stores and the artisanal shopping mall 2k540 Aki-Oka Artisan. The Shitamachi Museum is located just inside Ueno Park and offers a fascinating insight into local Tokyo life a hundred years back.
