This place is really cool - there are loads of beautiful gates guarding the area and every kind of Chinese food you can imagine. It is for the most part pretty authentic.

A very busy area with numerous streets that are mostly closed to traffic when it is busy. Tons of food vendors but not quite street food as in other Chinatowns. Lots of choices of places to eat. An interesting place to spend a couple of hours. Close to High-end shopping if that is your gig. The biggest drawback is that... More

Really nothing special about the Chinatown. With that said, it is quite clean and does have some stalls that sell buns. Also, the usual touristy kind of shops you get in Chinatown.

The china town area is huge. I thought Vancouver, San Francisco China towns are large, but the one in Yokohama is huge. Not enough time to explore. So many lovely restaurants, shops and also a instant noodle making display in a mall. Lots of treats to buy to try and to bring home as souvenirs.

There is a lot of choices to eat Chinese Dim Sum. We had a buffet type of lunch which included all you can eat from the menu. also has a lot of shopping options for gifts.

Chinese food poor, very poor. It may be the largest Chinatown is Asia, but certainly had the worst food. Dim Sum was terrible, shopping was cheap quality and poor

After visiting this congested area, full of tourist, we felt it should not be a priority to visit as most of the stores/shops/restaurants are selling almost the same food such as pau, dumpling etc. Tried a few types of pau, nothing spectacular. So we just walked through.

This is a huge area with a vast selection of shops, restaurants and Chinese temples. Very easy to get lost I just picked a point of reference which was one of the huge orange and white communication towers on the roofs and headed for that. I came in via motamachi which has lots of nice high end shops and left... More

take the Toyoko line from Shibuya... Y400+ 30mins and you are in a NEW WORLD! Yokohama Chinatown is a location you can walk like you are in a Chinese corner of a city but with the courtesy of the Japanese. food there is expensive but worth exploring. from there walk to the sea front.
