We spent a very nice Saturday afternoon walking along this upmarket shopping paradise. The atmosphere and weather was wonderful. You will find nice little shops on this walking street as it strictly car-free from 12noon to 6pm on weekends. Good restaurants and packed with the local affluent. An interesting experience and worth the visit.

After paying a visit to the Mega Store (Don Quijote) near the waterfront, we walked down towards this area and enjoyed a nice stroll along the immaculate street. Went inside a couple of stores and things were very nice. Just wish that we had more time to shop around a little. If we ever come back to Yokohama, this is... More

Unlike the bustling and busy streets in Chinatown, this area carries more upscale shopping experiences. It's great to take a look around but stuff here is not in anyways for the budget shopper. However, there is a Don Quijote store nearby which carries many items slightly cheaper that the branches in central Tokyo. It's worth a short trip down this... More

Forgot a few comfort items or just want to get out of your comfort zone. Try the Yokohama Motomachi Shopping Street. A friendly reception to polite Americans looking for a little adventure away from the prepackaged hotels.

Yokohama is always my favourite place to go in Japan. In Motomachi Street, incidentally I found this nice and cool bar. It's one of my good memory. It was not attractive when we first saw it. But when we decided to enter to have some drinks, I was amazed by the interior. We were welcome in by the young handsome... More

Very close to the Yokohama China town. There are lots of shops and too many Chinese restaurants to choose from. You will get lost!! Motomachi area is good for shops with characters and you will find some nice little shops here. You can also pick up many Chinese goodies and Chinese snacks as well. You really need to do some...

It's a nice area that makes you forget that you're in Japan, but the store selection is not the greatest. Still worth a wander and not too far from Chinatown. It's worth combining the two together to just have a look and to see the complete change in atmosphere from busy Chinatown to a more sophisticated shopping area.

Whilst it is yet another pleasant shopping street to walk through, unless you're keen on actually shopping, there isn't much else to see.

That's Motomachi's nickname, which you can see in some of the advertising in the shops along the street. It's the place to see and be seen. Rather than the place for you to go to see what kinds of shopping the locals like to do, it is the place where the locals go when they want to splurge on high-end... More

Great street to walk down and see what kind of shopping the locals like to do. There are plenty of western brands here if you're looking for them, and some cute cafes.
