Last update :

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.

    日本三大中華街神戶南京町、長崎新地、橫濱中華街是最大規模的,遊客很多傳統道地的中國美食也多,吃完還可以去附近山下公園散散步走動走動。

    中華街東西南北依照風水各有一個牌樓,還有媽祖廟、關帝廟,上海料理、四川料理、廣東料理各大菜系也都匯集在一起。

    來橫濱可以到中華街走走看看,至於餐館那是給日本人吃的,華人絕對吃不習慣。
