Chinatown in Yokohama is a fantastic place, especially after sunset. During early night it's very crowdy, all lights and golden signs are shining and it makes a fantastic impression! So if I may advise - don't miss it and come when it's already dark outside!

We visited China Town on a recent business trip and were impressed with the choice of places to eat and the atmosphere of the area. Worth a trip to this area when you are in Yokohama.

Good thing it was a windy day. Chinatown was too crowded. Had a hard time walking and choosing a place to eat because the lines were long! Too many people. Though we noticed that most stores sold similar food items, Pork bun, dumplings, Spring rolls. Good thing my son was able to check a restaurant that sold good boiled dumplings... More

There are a lot of enticing street food to try, interesting shops to browse around in and people to watch. You can spend hours here & never get tired of it.

It's a really great Chinatown...many many places to eat and to shop. Main downside for me is that it felt like most shopping places all had the same "made in China" items. Lots of Panda things!

Many eateries serving Chinese cuisine from all over China, besides Japanese fare. Old Chinese buildings abound.

There`s so much to eat here you just can`t stop! Spent about 3 hours here just munching on traditional Japanese and Chinese specialties! Other wise just some shops selling souvenirs and stuff!

Average Chinatown. Several restaurants, lots of street food vendors (chestnuts, pork buns), but nothing truly amazing. Worth a stop if you're in Yokohama, but I wouldn't go out of your way to visit.
