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

This shopping area is in fact a closed off street with piped music and no cars. All of the most fashionable plus local boutiques with most of the best brands.

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
