After visiting this congested area, full of tourist, we felt it should not be a priority to visit as most of the stores/shops/restaurants are selling almost the same food such as pau, dumpling etc. Tried a few types of pau, nothing spectacular. So we just walked through.

This is a huge area with a vast selection of shops, restaurants and Chinese temples. Very easy to get lost I just picked a point of reference which was one of the huge orange and white communication towers on the roofs and headed for that. I came in via motamachi which has lots of nice high end shops and left... More

take the Toyoko line from Shibuya... Y400+ 30mins and you are in a NEW WORLD! Yokohama Chinatown is a location you can walk like you are in a Chinese corner of a city but with the courtesy of the Japanese. food there is expensive but worth exploring. from there walk to the sea front.

Not very far from Tokyo and a large China Town. There are far too many Chinese restaurants so you need to research before you go. Some restaurants are so popular so you need to make a reservation or go early. Motomachi area is also good for shopping and the Yokohama city itself has some charm too. It is worth a... More

If you've seen one Chinatown, you've seen them.... Not so fast. This probably is the cleanest and quietest Chinatown in the world. The food is excellent, but you only get what you pay for.

We only had a few hours before it was time to return to the States, and the essence of Yokohama Chinatown (with some quick souvenir shopping and awesome snacking) can be had even if you have only an hour to kill once you get there. It's bustling, clean, and well maintained.

This is the best chinatown I have been to, we went at dusk and wandered for a while. There are lots of souvenir stores, though most sell the same cheap chinese wares, there are some good original stores amongst it all. A couple of temples and lots of good restaurants, which we got the impression where a bit pricier than... More

We made it around to Chinatown for a day trip and it was an incredibly neat experience. The first thing we noticed is people walking and eating, so the lawlessness of the place was not lost upon us. It was neat to snake around corridors and narrow streets and try the street food. I'm not cultured with a whole lot... More

We went to Yokohama expecting to spend a hole day in this city. We started in chinatown, which was a fun experience but nothing else. I would be hard to spend more than maximum a hour there, the shops are not super interesting and it is mostly chinese restuarants. We went on a thursday and it was very crowded. It... More
