It’s the largest Chinatown in Japan with plenty of restaurants. There are also about 9 gates of various sizes around Chinatown. It’s within walking distance of Yamashita Park . Minato Mirai 21 is two train stations away. Yokohama Chinatown has many pedestrian-only walking areas. Steamed meat buns are a big favourite with many places selling them. The colourful Mazu Miao...

Between Chinatown eating and Motomachi shopping, this is must go. Lots of little restaurants so we don't have a favorite but you must try the roasted chestnuts and meat buns from the vendors open to the streets. Oh, and don't forget s pastry at Pompadour

I have been to so many china towns that they all start looking the same, this being no exception. You find a ton of restaurants and small shops plus the streets were all packed with people. As usual, you manage to get a good bargain from the Chinese shops in in here :)

There are many places to eat in Chinatown. New and old places. I prefer to go to the old places with lots of history particularly Peking Hanten which is located on the corner of the entrance of Chinatown. Their food is wonderful and there is usually someone who could speak English. If you're not sure what to order, try one... More

This is a great place to wander through side streets and junky tourist shops. We had fun exploring all of the gift stalls and restaurant windows. All the food stands we passed smelled amazing! Good photo opportunities everywhere!

This a large Chinatown! The food and shopping are abundant. I recommend you walk through in the morning and at night if possible. In the morning its quiet and you really get the opportunity to see the architecture and decoration. At night it is vibrant and full of people providing a completely different perspective.

This town is loud and cheerful regardless of weekday or weekend. There are many restaurants and it requires lots of research to pick a right restaurant. Also popular restaurants have 1-2 hour long line to wait. If you like, you can spend all day here. Relatively quiet morning, cheap good eats for lunch, Chinese sweets and fancy dinner. I always...

So many restaurants & cafe's competing in one area. Good food competitively priced & an opportunity to try a multitude of chinese buns all freshly steamed. The area is close to the waterfront.

Very similar to Kobe Chinese town, just way bigger. Lots of places to grab a snack, souvenirs and Chinese restaurants. Almost always packed with people, both locals and tourists. But overall a nice experience!
