ADDITIONS:


Freak Market (フリークマーケット)

A local branch of FIT'S, a company that originally focused on American casual clothing. Decades ago they decided to try sukajan, jackets with embroidered Japanese designs, and sales of this new product took off. The company is said to have been the first commercial outlet for sukajan, even reversible ones. Sukajan sold in the US almost always cost much more than the prices you will see here. Freak Market also stocks patterns licensed from popular shows like Ultraman, One Piece, etc. and even have designs from traditional woodblock prints. Such designs are also on other types of clothing including shirts and hoodies.
CLOSED: 2nd Wednesdays.


Yayoiken Higashi Ueno (やよい軒 東上野店)
[East of the area in Ueno Detail 3 map]

The local branch of the restaurant chain Yayoi. I include it here as this is an excellent place to get a Japanese style breakfast at very reasonable prices. As you enter there is a machine where you can order and pay for your meal. This is a touch screen device and has an English menu option for easy selection. Pay for your meal, collect your ticket and change then seat yourself. You don't need to be able to speak Japanese as the ticket has your selection. Refills on rice and tea are free, just help yourself.
