Japan Signs: Ameyoko Fruit Stall
Tuesday, February 16th, 2010
I hate to drag up a photo from warmer days while those of you in the northern hemisphere are still freezing cold but here we go anyway ^_^
This was shot somewhere along the busy market streets of the famous Ameyoko in Ueno, Tokyo.
There is all sorts of produce available for sale including seafood, fruit and vegetables right through to shoes, t-shirts and jeans. The markets are always packed, which makes for an exciting place to visit when you’re next in Tokyo.
The fruit on a stick sells from just ¥100, which is a bargain I reckon, especially in Japan.
Almost all of the fruit in the signs are listed in Katakana so this is a great exercise to sharpen those skills if you’re just starting out with Japanese or getting rusty.
Here’s a few to get you started.
