Pleasant pedestrian-friendly shopping street but the buildings are a bit monochrome with a lot of grey buildings and paving. Running about 500 metres, there is an interesting mix of restaurants and shops, the latter with some high-end brand names, good displays and a cute little ‘pet bar’ with water for passing dogs. One end of the street is conveniently located next to Ishikawa-cho station (although the upmarket shops start a little further along) and down the hill from the Yamate foreign residences area and worth a look if you are in the area.

What's with all the talk, hype, about this place? We haven't a clue. After walking all the way here, boy were we disappointed. Thankfully we each brought a beer! There's not much to say about this shopping street, even though many Japanese people recommended it to us. Does the word "nothing" have meaning? Well, this was a "nothing" for us. Hey, to each is his own. We did get a lot of exercise!

I grew up in Yokohama so Motomachi has a nostalgic place in my heart. Many of the shops have changed together with the type of people, but the overall experience is the same. Before (I’m thinking 30 years or so ago), this street catered more to the locals, with groceries, supermarkets and such, with local prices. But now big brand commercial shops are more pronounced, and the crowds are definitely more tourists and visitors. I still like it there though. I like to get off the train at Ishikawacho, and walk all the way to the other end of the main street to where Motomachi Plaza is, window shopping and maybe have a coffee along the way...a nice afternoon walk.

The shopping arcade is very famous and popular in the city. That’s the place which I want to take my friends to hangout or dine. You can feel history of the city from anywhere. Small boutiques, restaurants are very fascinating. There are several brands started from here. Each restaurant has signature dish if they are not belongs to huge chainstore. Also very close to Chinatown and Yamashita park. 元町商店街はとても有名で人気のある場所で友達とブラブラしたりご飯を食べたりするのに適しています。歴史も古いので至る所から歴史を感じることができるでしょう。
