Lots of shops and restaurants all crammed together! It's nice during the day but even better at night! Paper lanterns hang in the alleyways and traditional Chinese architecture is lit up for you to enjoy. Grab a steamed bun and bubble tea and take a stroll!

Its your typical Chinatown street. Vibrant and exciting atmosphere with lots of Chinese restaurants and shops to spend time in. New change - predominantly Chinese from China with a smattering of Taiwanese. Restaurants serve authentic mainland food. A bit too starchy for my taste as lots of carbo. Unique shop signage and general decor on the street. We were lucky... More

If you've been to other major shopping streets in Japan this one does not feel it bests them. It has nice yummi food stands, and the restaurant and shop fronts are incredibly pretty. But the food variety is really poor - almost all stands sell the exact same stuff, most even reuse the same stock photos for dishes. It's certainly... More

Nothing much to see especially we are family from Asia but maybe interesting for other non Asian tourists Food here are much expensive compared to our home with similar products so we just walk around in an hour, nothing much to buy

This is a large area and we didn't find it too busy. There are obviously many restaurants to choose from and without much English it is difficult to work out how some of them work. Some are 'all you can eat' type and we found this confusing at times. We felt more comfortable ordering what we wanted and paying for... More

This is a huge Chinatown that's bustling with tourists. A lot of interesting things to see but we did not spend enough time there. We did not eat at any restaurants there but did try the steamed meat buns which was very good!

Great experience for the family, good for shopping and restaurants and the atmosphere is buzzing both during the day and at night time. Grab some dumplings and peruse for panda shaped gifts.

We did not have long here, most places were closed as it was early morning, ( as was expected ), and it was SO COLD our party ducked into Starbucks to get out of the cold lol. Shame, could have been more interesting late afternoon or night time.

You'll find a typical Chinatown with hundreds of restaurants and souvenir shops. A popular place on holidays and weekends. It can be really crowded and hard to navigate. It is a fun place to visit.
