One would wonder why let us visit a Chinatown in Japan. But this one is also good to see with the beautiful Buddhist Temple & the colorful gates. As usual this is where one can buy Chinese goods & delicacies.

I have never really been to China town before so this was my first time. Just like the rest of Japan it's crowded, nothing I did not already expect. I was unable to find the spa that you can go to to have fish nibble on your toes but if you can find it go for it. I was disappointed... More

Some good restaurants but be careful and check prices and what you get for your money prior to ordering. Received six pieces of thinly sliced pork no bigger than a egg and when asked was this a starter was told, no this serve is for the two people who ordered pork. Cost was to be $40 AUD!. When queried this,... More

It is crowded in weekend, seems like Takeshita Doori. Many shops along the street, but since it is owned by Chinese, the service is different as the regular restaurant in Japan. I cannot say that it is better. I visited one shop that sell cake/cookie on the corner of the street. The taste was veeeery nice.

Despite driving rain, driving through Yokohama Chinatown was a thrill of endless restaurants and interesting sights. Peking Hanten restaurant provided a delicious varied meal for our group of eight.

It was disappointing to see shop after shop and restaurant after restaurant out to get money from you. Really did not see anything that was cultural except for the gates leading in to Chinatown. Don't make a special trip just to go see Yokohama's Chinatown district unless you really like visiting Chinatowns around the world.

Do you enjoy very generic reheated chinese food and garish colors? If yes, come to Yokohama Chinatown - others should steer clear. Definitely not worth the trip from Tokyo - or Yokohama for that matter.

Recently visited the Chinatown in Yokohama and was pleasantly surprised with the ambience. Quiet and very respectful. The quality of food was good, but you need to know where to go, as anywhere. The area can be a little overwhelming with the type of menu provided. Some places offered the meal @ 2000 yen for a full 7 course and... More

A very large Chinatown with loads of restaurants (one of which we enjoyed a great inexpensive meal) and souvenir type stalls - very easy to walk around
