Chinatown or Chukagai in Japanese, is a fun place for dining, shopping or just walking around. Chinese people started settling in Yokohama in the mid-1800s when Japan opened its doors to international trade. Since then Yokohama's Chinatown has blossomed into the country's largest Chinese community. The area comprises one major street, dozens of cross-streets and alleys, and is home to over 100 restaurants, most serving Cantonese cuisine. There are also many colorful and exotic shops overflowing with Chinese goods, books, souvenirs and even Chinese medicines.
There is nothing to dislike about Yokohama. It is a beautiful place with lots of interesting history. Chinatown has great food and great atmosphere. Lots of shopping for very good prices. You can also visit the Landmark Tower and go to some really nice malls with lots of great stores such as Tiffany& Co. and The Limited. There are also lots of places within walking distance for more shopping and eating. Also while you're there you should take the ferry and enjoy the ride. You really can do a lot in Yokohama without spending lots of money. Enjoy!
