Best Chinese food! Not much to do here other than eat, but that's why you visit Chinatown. Some interesting Chinese architecture. Best food can be found down the alleyways. More fun to buy food from here and there while walking around. Best shop for food was Edosei 江戸清。Many filling options for buns found here. Don't miss the Shaopin. It's mini... More

I love to visit Chinatowns when I am travelling and this one is huge. Lots of restaurants,food stalls and plenty to browse. My highlight was seeing a French Bulldog being fitted for a coat.

Love every single bit of strolling at this area and passed by awesome gift shops that are not as pricey as the ones at Rokko mall. Awesome locals that were really friendly and made me feel like a celebrity as everyone bows and smiles at you.

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.
