Yokohama Chinatown is lively and fun! The streets are lined with shops and restaurants that offer a vast variety. Many of the shops sell cheap Chinese souvenirs but there are a few treasures that sell quality items. It is fun to wander in and out of each shop! There are several restaurants that have huge wooden steamers filled with Bun... More

One of the most dramatic festivals in Yokohama is the Chinese New Year Celebrations in early 2014. Food and joyous moments all in one place. An annual event not to be missed.

I have visit few Chinatown over the world. This Chinatown a bit unique.Beside Chinese life style you also can few some of Japanese culture already embedded in their living culture.Is mixing between Chinese & Japanese style. If your are interested in human culture this is the place i recommend you to go. You also can get tradition Chinese food there

This is one of the biggest Chinatowns outside of china. It certainly worth a visit, especially for the food.

I love Chinatowns around the world. But the one in Yokohama is the quietest and cleanest I have ever been to! Great shopping, and the 100 Yen store has stuff I can't find at home any more. once whole suitcase got packed with 100 Yen items! Yay Chinatown!

As British Columbians, we consider ourselves dumpling experts, and we were in dumpling heaven here. We only ate the street food, and what we ate was excellent: soup dumplings (sho ron po), sesame balls (goma dango), pork buns, and much more. The highlight was the baked / fried / and steamed buns. They were crunchy on the bottom, soft on... More

Chinatown in Yokohama is fun to walk through. It's great for souvenir shopping (especially if you're fond of pandas), eating and foot massages. Small enough area to see in one day. Very crowded on the weekends.

Just another shopping and dining place.... You can buy vegetables at a very lowest price compared to any other place in the city....
