Chinatown

Yokohama Chukagai, as one of Japan's three largest Chinatowns, is a neighborhood lined with Chinese restaurants. From upscale luxury brand stores to reasonably-priced “all-you-can-eat”, there are places to suit every taste and any budget. For example, try authentic haute cuisine in a luxurious restaurant, or buy a takeaway at a small store or booth for the pleasure of eating on the go. There are also many restaurants offering affordable and delicious buffets.

One of the pleasures of shopping is walking and eating along Nakamura Street in Yokohama. Check out the Peking duck or experience the sensation of walking around with mooncakes or famous meat buns in your hand. There are also many local shops, where you can buy delicious ingredients, groceries and cooking utensils with Chinese characteristics, many of which are quite suitable for hand gifts. Another highlight of Yokohama's Nakagawa Street is its 10 tall arches, a popular punching spot featuring the ornate style of ancient Chinese architecture and ethnic characteristics.

In addition, a variety of traditional cultural activities will be held at Nakagawa Street in Yokohama in accordance with the seasons and various festivals throughout the year. It will be more enjoyable if you can go there in accordance with the activity schedule.

    很多中式料理的餐廳都是吃到飽,又貴又難吃!

    到處都是賣包子和燒賣的店家,口渴了買杯珍珠奶茶來喝喝看,珍珠煮的太硬,口感和台灣差很多

    前几天去横滨中华街吃烤鸭,真的可以说是原汁原味的北京烤鸭。让我想起以前在北京全聚德和家人一起吃烤鸭的情景。到了横滨中华街有一种回到家乡的感觉,但又有一种很新鲜的异国情调。在日本旅游时建议一定要来这里看看。
