Don't go if you hate crowds. Shoulder-to-shoulder as you walk through the entire area. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Lots of places to buy Chinese things. It is worth visiting at least once.

Only half day stay, a bit too short and I like to visit Yokohama Chinatown again. We saw many shops along the way, but our tour bus could not stop. Because we were delayed by the traffic jam form Tokyo. The weather was so good, no hot sun. It was a good view and Yokohama Chinatown was the biggest in... More

Very crowded, very bustling place.There are so many choices of food you can choose. Some are delicious, some are not. Comparing to other China Towns in USA, it is very clean here.

Location is good. You have the Tokyu line under ground and JR line with in 10 minute walk to China Town. Very active during the weekend, so visit on the week day. The best place's to eat, I say would be the small shops. The food has a more traditional taste.

Indeed, when you stroll down the crowdy streets of the quarter, you immediately spot the difference, compared to the rest of the city. You truly feel more like in China than in Japan. Colorful neons, louder (than elsewhere) crowd, lots of small (mostly alimentary) shops and restaurants. Can be a little tiresome, but worth seeing and experiencing.

We had a great walk around Yokohama Chinatown, it's a nice way to spend a few hours browsing around shopping and snacking. There are loads of good restaurants of course, but we opted to just graze, buying food from the street-side stalls, which was a lot more fun (and cheaper). We had dynamite pork buns, plus "goma dango" which are... More

There's nothing too different from Yokohama Chinatown and other Chinatowns in Japan, to be honest. There's quite a bit of food for a good price (the restaurants that offer "order viking" or buffet style types are probably your best bang for your buck) and a bit of shopping, but not really much out of the ordinary. Go there when you're... More

Japan's largest Chinatown and Yokohama's biggest tourist draw. It's a pretty fun place to check out for a few hours. Of course, if you're going to go, you should plan on eating. A visit to Chinatown is 90% eat and 10% looking at cheap plastic junk made in the 3rd world. Be warned, there are so many restaurants here and... More

A quick 35-40 minute train ride from Tokyo Yokohama's Chinatown offers some great dinner, shops and spectacles. Always extremely busy on the weekends, there is food available everywhere from Restaurants, Bars and Street Vendors. Look for a 'Fixed Price' all you can eat Yum Cha Restaurant.

Classic Chinatown full of interesting shops and delicious food. Could spend hours exploring. Our Japanese friend took us to her favourite restaurant for dinner - an upmarket one - and the food was spectacular but I don't know the name. Another day we went to a small restaurant near the entrance...staff were cool but the food was great.
