Good for a lazy afternoon of window shopping

This is not a place to bargin hunt (although you may find some if you are lucky). It is more of a place to browse and enjoy a fine weather day.

We arrived at 9.30am but most shops were not open till 11am, some at 10am. Nice mix of stores including a Laura Ashley, Gap etc so not many traditional Japanese. Pleasant walk though.

I took the express train and then walked. I used google maps and my iPhone. Bus 105 will take you back to Yokohama station about 210 yen. It's just a cute street full of high end stores and shops as well as restaurants. It is worth a visit. Cars cannot drive on the street. There are benches to rest and... More

Nicer stores and restaurants line this street and area. The variety of restaurants is amazing. And the stores are more upscale but not too expensive.

This is the place to hit if you plan on doing any shopping in Yokohama. The main reason is it is packed with local stores you won't find in other cities - unlike the malls that are packed with the same stores as Tokyo. The best way to get here is the 100 yen bus.

A most charming shopping street in Yokohama! Although I didn't shop much, I like the atmosphere and many good restaurants in the back street. Definitely a must visit while in Yokohama.

This is a classy and expensive shopping street between Ishikawacho station and Yamashita Koen (park). Mostly the shops are not the same ones you see in Europe and North America (there is a Zara, but few of the others)
