Ueno flea market 2009/1/10 17:10

I'm going to Tokyo end of this February and will like to visit the Ueno flea market. Anyone know how to reach there if i alight at Asakusa station? What exactly does this flea market sell?
I'm trying to look for reasonable Japanese snacks.

The market is under the JR tracks at Ueno, so I'd catch a subway to Ueno and go from there. It sold everything,and snack wise there was heaps: rice cakes especially, and we had superb fresh fruit on stocks (huge pieces of pineapple, or watermelon etc) for 100Y..just stood around the stall and threw used sticks into a bin..there was seafood, pickles ..we didn't see more than about 20% of the market, and it was great fun

the Ueno market (Ameyokocho) is accessible by the JR Yamanote loop line and the Ginza subway line. it is a regular market, selling all sorts of clothes and other goods besides food. It is not really a flea-market as most--if not all- of the stuff is new. Some stuff does look second hand, like US army surplus clothes, but can't possible be as genuine US army surplus clothes are much bigger!!!. The ones I saw were sized for young slim Japanese guys.
