  • There is A Korean Town on the back side of Showa-dori, which is about between Ueno and Ochimachi. It is a small section, but there are yakiniku shops, kimchi, meat and rice.

  • On the southeast side of JR Ueno Station, there is a Korean Town called Kimchi Yokocho on Higashi-Ueno 2-chome in Taito Ward. It is said that it is the oldest Korean town in Tokyo, starting with a row of yakiniku shops and kimchi shops branched out from Ochimachi Shopping Street in 1948. Japan-ROK relations are deteriorating, is that the reason? When I stopped by, I felt like I was not lively.
