Fun window shopping

We had a little time to spare so this was fun window shopping. Many kinds of stores and shops. Also near Chinatown so a good combination tour for a few hours.

Traveling to this part of the city was a blast. Nice rush of adrenaline and definitely spending my money on some decent items!

A shopping street with some upscale stores and malls. Tip: Be sure to walk to the nearby Yamate area known as the Bluff. Yamate has the historic Foreign general cemetery and views of the Bay. You can walk there through the railway station near Brooks Brothers at the bottom of Motomachi. The walk passes by a park where Japanese bridal... More

More upmarket brands than budget names. Nice for a walk and window shopping. Better off hitting Ameyoko in Ueno, Tokyo.

Go here if you are looking for brand stuff and you have a big budget. Then again, if I it was me then the buildings at Yokohama station are much better.

This shopping street is literally shops along sidewalk. It is near to Chinatown, you just need to pass on the bridge. There is a lot of shops for jewelries, gold and silver. There are also international shops around.

Yet another shopping street of Yokohama. Unlike China Town, here you will get items from other parts of the world as well. Good for a stroll. There are many shops, restaurants and coffee shops inclusive of one Star Bucks :)

This is one of our favourite streets. There is a Starbucks at the start to help you drift along the shops. Got my wife a lovely purse from Louis Vuitton and just a nice shopping experience.

This mile-long corridor is very pedestrian friendly with scores of high-end brand name stores, restaurants, bars and services. No vehicle traffic to speak of. Very safe and pleasant to visit but not cheap. Easy access from the Motomachi-Chukagai station. Walking distance to the Foreign Settlement and Cemetery area and the large park and gardens. Worth a visit.

If you come from a place that doesn't have shopping malls, and for whatever reason hate shopping online, you will find this enchanting. It's one long street of upscale brands accompanied by a few select local brands and novelties all selling essentially the same uninspiring items at inflated prices. This was really the most boring part of my visit to... More
