Just south of Chinatown is this lovely area stretching for several blocks with all kinds of retail shops. Many are handbag and clothing-oriented. There's even a Talbot's (US brand) here. It was fun to wander, although I didn't see any "local" handicrafts or similar stores...More

We accessed Motomachi (by foot) after spending a leisurely walk around Yamate. Both Western and Japanese retail shops, cafes, restaurants in this area (tourist-friendly).

Good place to stroll after a meal. Shops mainly offer tourist items. If you are fit you can walk to Chinatown from here.

One of the Yokohama area's posher shopping streets. Very nice and calm area and as with all of Japan, famously clean. Well worth a stroll around, especially as a foreigner re: tax free goodies :)

Too many people skip Yokohama whilst visiting Japan. If in Tokyo for an extended stay, a weekday visit here would be a nice respite. The street is full of good shops and eats and very fashionable locals. There are smaller covered shopping arcades and plenty...More
