Motomachi is worth a visit. there are some delightful shops to poke around in and we found an excellent restaurant upstairs with some of the best Japanese food I had on my trip. A walk up the Bluff is well worth it while you are there to see the Foreign Cemetery and views.

Motomachi shopping street has lots of high end stores and restaurants. Some of my favorite foods were Cappricciosa for some of the best Japanese Italian food you will find and the crepe stall inbetween Motomachi station and Starbucks.

I would say that I had a really nice time shopping there. Of course the prices are on higher side but as tourist you get some special things here. With nice cafés and bakeries, soothing music around, it just sets up the mood. Also I found a sports bar there named " Laser Rush", very genuinely priced drinks and food.... More

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
