Before the pandemic, Ueno’s Ameyoko market street was an area I regularly opted for on days when the light was just right. The atmosphere, trackside location, and most of all those shopping there made it a great place to take photos. Then Covid, and in particular mask wearing changed all that, meaning a once regular haunt became somewhere I rarely visited.
However, with most faces now mercifully uncovered, along with the great light Tokyo is often blessed with at this time of year, it’ll very likely become an irresistible location once again. Definitely so if I can come away with more photographs like the first one — a moment captured very recently. The other shots are all from that other time, providing some nice reminders as well as a good chance to show some previously posted and unposted pictures.
