Here alot about this area, so thought I would take a look. It is one long street, several labels etc, but it is more about the history and the street itself. Take a walk in the back streets and you will see many interesting houses and old shops. It is close to Chinatown so you are able to see both... More

Similar to Rodeo Drive, really wasn't the style of shopping I was looking for, all upper class, overpriced brands and such. More for the older crowd. Has a great supermarket though with more products and brands you dont see in other common supermarkets in Japan, which isn't overpriced suprisingly.

This street has a European feel to it, great for a leisurely stroll with all the different types of shops you would want including one that sells beautiful chopsticks and Japanese gifts. Plenty of places to eat as well.

I do not really like Japanese shopping malls (too many shops and too much people in the same place) and I found Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street the right place to do shopping in a more comfortable way. I also appreciated the atmosphere mixing old Japanese style and modern street design.

My friend took me here the last day I was in Japan. It was a really hot summer day in yokohama! we walked around and checked out some cute shops around the area and it was quite nice. It might be nothing that special here compared to other cool spots in yokohama,but in general a great place to hang out... More

We walked along Motomachi Shopping street a few times. First time just to get a cup of coffee at one of the many cafes. Then we went when we wanted to get some breakfast at a café, another time looking for a restaurant for dinner that we had found and other times just browsing the many shops along the way.... More

Motomomachi shopping street is a 3 minutes walk from Ishikawa-Cho Station JR LINE, therefore, it is a good place for eating lunch, or dinner before you continue your journey to Yamashita Park and China Town or vice versa when you return back to Ishikawa-Cho Station. A lot of Japanese restaurants, like Ramen,Udon etc. Have a foreign shops store also like... More

We do -- first of all it's very select, small townish, but high quality. There's a very cool, hip women's store on the second floor right in the middle of Motomachi -- can't remember the name, but I bought wonderful clothing there - lots of flowing, Japanese style things that I love -- they usually have a little manequin out...

This is a part of the city. That resembles European cities the most with its shopping arcade, 19th century cobblestone streets and facades. Extend your walk to the Foreigners cemetery and some of the European style homes next to Yamate area
