Yokohama Chinatown

Food & Drink Shopping
Free Admission

The Yokohama Chinatown is proud to be one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. Easily accessible, you can get there on a quick trip from Tokyo. There are as many as 600 restaurants you can choose from, with menus which range from delicious all-you-can-eat Chinese to sophisticated Dim Sum tea time. Of course, just to eat and walk around is great fun, but you can also stop by fortune-telling shops, and maybe even get some light shopping done here. Recently, the “Yokohama Kanteibyo”, a shrine to China’s historical hero, Guan Yu from the Three Kingdoms period, has emerged as a popular attraction and is gaining popularity among travelers.

3 out of 5 stars

Lots of snack shops are selling small steamed buns (Xiaolongbao) in the main street of Chinatown. If you like this kind of snack, this spot is a must-go in Japan. There are various restaurants here. Most of them provide two regional cuisines in China, spicy Sichuan cuisine or Cantonese cuisine. Actually I don’t know whether they are authentic. But my friends told me you can find good spicy Chinese food here if you are lucky enough to enter the right restaurants. For me, the greatest thing is grocery stores in the side streets. You can find some Chinese snacks and sauces imported from China there. If you go this spot in holiday, it may be very crowded.
