We were staying at the nearby Rose Hotel so we came here to explore and experience the "Chinese" way of lifestyle, customs, and of course food though on Japanese soil. It was only within 3mins of walk from the hotel. The main entrance was so "Chinese" even with Chinese words inscribed on the entry pillar. Shophouses (with a great number... More

We went to Yokohama on a cruise. Chinatown was very conveniently located just a short distance from the port. We really enjoyed walking through the shops and checking out the goods that were being sold. I would recommend that you not miss Yokohama Chinatown!

very accessible from the good hotels in Yokohama.... very clean and houses many temples... people can also sample great buns and dimsum... Great place to buy souvenirs too. Not the most culturally authentic "chinese" but it is a good stop by while visiting other nearby tourists destinations.

It looks like any other Chinatown in many parts of the world, be it Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, or Melbourne. But what I found strange here was in one of the dim-sum restaurants where we had our breakfast. They do serve beer to go with your breakfast. Culturally, strange to me. When we were sight-seeing around the town, we noticed some... More

Second biggest Chinatown in the world. Although it is smaller in size compared to the one in San Francisco, SF has NOTHING on how authentic this one is. Lots of souvenir shops to shop from, and yummy restaurants to choose from. It's easy (and..fun?) to get lost here, as there are lots of interesting shops you might not find anywhere... More

There's not much else to do in yokohama but as a place to wander and eat Chinatown is pretty good. There's street food and table service 'as much as you can eat' set price restaurants. As well as loads of souvenir and dumpling/sweet shops.

I visited the place to guide my friend from foreign country. I've lived in Yokohama for some years, and this is one of must see place when you visit Yokohama. There are a lot of Chinese restaurants and fancy shops in China town. I love a pleasant ambience in this area. You cannot decide which restaurant you will go for... More

Yokohama Chinatown is nothing like Chinatown in New York or San Francisco. The culture is strongly retained, and is much more authentic. Highly recommended. If you are staying in Tokyo and can make the time, it is well worth it to jump on the train and make this part of your trip. While you are down there, check out some... More

An incredible choice of places to eat, places suitable for all budgets too. We visited twice, the first time entertaining, the second on our own. The restaurant staff try to attract you in with offers, but take care because what you get is not necessarily what you expect. On our first visit the menu said 50% off, yes, it was,... More
