Innumerable number of Chinese restaurants and souvenir shops. You can find some pretty good meal deals. More and more Chinese who are recent arrivals to Japan, not just those who immigrated generations ago. You're more likely to hear Mandarin spoken than Japanese. Lots of little lanes and alleys. You could easily spend hours here.

Taking a day trip out of Tokyo, we took a local train to Yokohama, and by accident, landed up in magical Chinatown!...Lively, colorful, packed with people out in the streets and in the many restaurants, it was a marvelous visit to one of the best Chinatowns I have ever seen...Truly worth a visit...

Mostly restaurants that don't really cater for us Gaijins, not much in terms of other shopping, there are better ones around the world.

We're spoilt with good Chinese food in Melbourne, so we shouldn't have gone to any chinatown in Japan. Big mistake. Worthed a picture and that's all.

Chinatown really needs no introduction as there are Chinatowns all over the world, but Yokohama's Chinatown is particularly special as it's not only a tourist magnet for locals and visitors alike, but also the largest Chinatown outside of China in the world. The place is nearly almost always teaming with visitors looking to sample delicious freshly made steamed buns, shaved... More

Bustling streets with many shops geared for the tourists. Go to the next street over from the main China Town street, and you will see a grand temple. Even further over are the residents of China Town. It is like a maze. The aroma of food being prepared is overwhelming if you are hungry! If you want western food, go... More

Colourfull, overflowing with restaurants, though language is going to be an issue in many of them. A handful of restaurants had English translations on their menus, but speaking to thewaiters was difficult in most cases. A very entertaining couple of hours, best seen after dark.
