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

We visited this shopping complex by accident, passing through the gates of China town's boundary. The shopping here is good, especially if you are staying in Yokohama, it is close and seems not to be a busy as other parts of the city. The people are friendly, as you would expect in Japan. If you are looking for a bargain,... More
