Many stores and people. Some stores give discount, mostly in the end of the season. It offers beautiful architecture of the store and cafe. Let's shop a lot.

Worth a visit - the shops are lovely (although expensive). Lovely at night. I remember my last visit here in December 2013 seeing Santa riding down the street on a white horse - priceless

It is a small street with many shops, mostly clothes and apparel.Well maintained, I just feel there are not many restaurants/ cafes to accommodate the flow of people on weekends and holidays.

Took a trip to Motomachi because we were told that the St. Patrick's day parade was being held there. It turned out that it was already over so rather than waste the day we explored this beautiful little town. We visited the parks there which give you a great view of the sea port of Yokohama. The town itself is... More

Plenty of boutiques, both familiar and new, line the allies in this neighborhood. There's something for everyone. Unfortunately, the whole area is a bit short on places to eat.

Often this street is closed to traffic on the weekends making it nice for walking, there are a few pubs and eateries on the side and back streets

This is an elegant area with wealthy shops. I can't afford to buy here, but enjoy window shopping. I never am made to feel uncomfortable.

One of my favourite current places in Yokohama, which I visit at least once a week, ostensibly to eat and have a Guinness at the Laser Rush Bar ( Japanese owner / Scottish wife), followed by a quiet drink in the tucked away X-Ray bar. Motomachi is in fact two streets running parallel and sloping up a hill to a... More
