Probably the best Chinatown I have seen, and I have seen a few. But, prepare yourself : 80% of all attractions are restaurants. Small, big, fancy, cheap, outdoor, all kinds. They are all overpriced, though, due to location. Step outside of Chinatown realms and you will be back to "regular" pricing. Baseball Stadium is close. There are two very nice... More

Lots of shops. Very reasonable prices. Some bargaining at a few shops. Lots of different items and lots of places to eat.

Strongly recommended if u r a westerner. Nice treat of chinese culture in Japan. For native chinese travelers, u can skip it. It's very quite commercial with many shops peddling key chain souvenirs only. But a nice stroll in a familiar environment. Overall , nothing spectacular like Asakusa or Shinjuku that showcases the depth of the local culture.

It is a nice place to walk around if you are tired of the order in Yokohama and you have visited already the little bars of the old town (that I strongly recommend). We had very different experiences pricewise and qualitywise there. Beware that some places might look cheap but they actually aren't... and some might look like nothing special... More

Chinatown is a must-see in Yokohama. I spent about an hour roaming around and taking pictures before I settled on a restaurant. Lot's a street dumplings and souvenir shops. The best part was seeing all the buildings and lanterns lit up at night.

Not as good as expected. Maybe by then we were totally taken with Japanese food! It was an exciting area with lots to see & experience.

Only worth going if it's your first visit to Yokohama. I was surprised with the number of eateries in the area but they were quite repetitive and average selling buns, dumplings, chestnuts, noodles or pearl tea. And many souvenir soups selling panda products. Recommend to go via JR. Ishikawacho station if you have a JR. Pass.

This is a town of restaurants. It is good if you like chinese food. But I don't recommend you go only to there.

As the biggest Chinatown outside China (so I believe) this is certainly worth a visit. We had a snack at one restaurant because it served gyoza, which we love, but I made no note of the name so can't review it! I imagine there isn't a lot of difference between the restaurants here, there are millions of them and most... More
