Even though they are a minority…they stil manage to claim the space they deserve in the Mis-En-Scene of Tokyo.  

From Ueno station down along the Yamnote line towards Akihabara, you find the location of vendor heaven. Ameyoko (アメ横)  a bazaar Asian style, noisy, crowded and cheap!

アメ横 - vendor

But since this is japan, there is some level of class and conduct to it.  Thank god…

Metrosexsual vendors even mange to infiltrate the upmarket shopping district of Ginza. His style and preformance, flawless…and those nicely trimmed bi- and triseps takes him over the edge of perfection.

In other parts of Tokyo such as Asakusa, you will encounter the more traditional low-key breed of vendors. Selling traditional things….irasshaimase!
