A very interesting Chinatown and one of the biggest and most colourful of its kind. Have seen that it has grown a lot in recent year since my first visits. Interesting food to choose from, the authentic Chinese as well as the Japanese interpretation of Chinese cuisine. This can compare with the Chinatown of San Francisco as one of the... More

It was great to pass by for sightseeing but you don't have to list it as your top priority since there were not much interesting things to do

Worth a visit but personally not a fan of bustling streets and markets. It was obviously very popular given the number of people there.

We enjoyed a little local restaurant, some great custard tarts and sesame balls, shopping, the noise and colour. A bit similar to other China Towns but still enjoyable

As you may know Yokohama Chinatown is the biggest Chinatown in Japan. Of course you can enjoy great Chinese in here, but also street food is also great. In most restaurants, chef is a Chinese. Not Japanese!

Very interesting and atmosepheric. Tricky to find something to eat if you're vegetarian. Learn your kana and kanji before you go to Japan!

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
