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

Beside Chinatown, Motomachi is a popular touristic destination. You can find many fashionable shops, trendy restaurants and coffee shops. But since I am not a lover of shopping, I do not have a particular interest.

My wife loved and even I tolerated a wander up this shopping street. Yes, the global brands are there but so too are the unique and individual Yokohama brands and shops such as Wanomisehiyori for silk kimonos and accessories. Well worth a wander through if you are in Yokohama.

Motomachi Shopping street is like beeing in Europe. On the weekend the one way drive street is closed for Car traffic and you can freely stroll up and down to nice music from the out door speakers in the street. there is often entertainment and places to eat and drink are plentiful. really a gem of Yokohama.

This place is cool to see and experience. If you're not shopper, it is just more of the endless places to shop. There are some cool bars and restaurants in the area.

A surprising set of very trendy shoppes, primarily Waestern style, just minutes by walk from Yokohama's famous Chinatown. Original fashions, crafts, eateries and genuinely fun part to visit. While you're only a few minutes walk from Chinatown and a few more minutes walk to a historic Motomachi "mountain," the time spent here will whittle away, so make sure you set... More
