Let’s Visit Tokyo – Okachimachi

Let’s Visit Tokyo - Okachimachi

Stuck between Akihabara and Ueno Station, I discovered Okachimachi a long time ago thanks to Sanyo Japan. Yep, in order to visit Sanyo HQ you have to stop at Okachimachi Station and pass by one of the most interesting places to visit in Tokyo.

Okachimachi is another popular place of Tokyo, where everyday Japanese people live and do their shopping in tiny little shops located all along the railway and just beneath it. Most people (tourists) make the same mistake by just walking down the street, and ignoring those many shops hidden under the railway. So if you happen to visit this place, don’t forget these shops.

While this shopping area is mainly targeted to the Japanese with its vegetables, fruits, fish and meat stores, there are however quite a lot of tiny fashion stores where you can find many US branded clothes and even some “Military” goods ranging from the Jungle boosts (Mine are getting old by the way) to the leather jackets…

Messy, crowded and a tiny bit dirty, but Okachimachi is worth your time if you happen to visit either Ueno or Akihabara !

    The overblown vignetting gives a sense of peeping tom to the video… xD Very voyeur-ish.
