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

Except for the cool concept of making your own custom noodles and designing your own "cup", it's otherwise not very interesting unless you have a thing for packaged foods. There is a restaurant that looks good but not cheap.

Touristy but interesting. Mostly food. Did not see any jewelry stores as in San Francisco Chinatown. Some good places for dim sum but not serious shopping.

This is a very nice Chinatown. Although it is suppose to be one of the world's best, to be honest I believe San Francisco's Chinatown is superior. That said, there are some wonderful shops and places to eat! Nice place to go for part of a day and easily accessible.

Very fun place to visit, a little touristy but worth the time to walk around for an hour or two. The main streets are about a car and a half wide, the narrow side streets are about 4 people wide, which made it very fun for us and our kids when crowded. The streets are a bit uneven and you... More
