Today’s “Walking Around” video will be all about the famous open-air market, Ameyoko. Located just a station away from Akihabara and Ueno, Ameyoko Market, or more officially Ameya Yokocho, is home to almost 200 stores. These stores sell pretty much everything, ranging from fresh vegetables and seafood to clothes, bags, cosmetics, other general goods. It even has a nice little Temple.

Now, you may wonder why the name Ameya or Ameyoko is written in Katakana? Well, after the second world war, the place was famous for selling US army goods on the black market where the term AME (アメ) was the short form of the word AMERICA (アメリカ).

Aujourd’hui, nous consacrons la vidéo “Walking around” au célèbre marché à ciel ouvert Ameyoko. Se situant à seulement une station d’Akihabara et de Ueno, le marché d’Ameyoko, ou plus officiellement Ameya Yokocho, abrite quelques 200 boutiques. Vous y trouverez de tout comme des aliments frais, des vêtements, des sacs, des cosmétiques, et bien d’autres produits. Il y a même un joli petit temple. Certains d’entre vous sont probablement en train de se demander pourquoi on orthographie Ameya ou Ameyoko en Katakana (alphabet utilisé pour des noms empruntés aux langues étrangères). En fait, après la seconde guerre mondiale, cet endroit était réputé pour vendre des produits US sur le marché noir. AME (アメ) est donc le diminutif d’AMERICA (アメリカ).
