Yokohama Chinatown

Travel Guide - Yokohama Chinatown

Information

Yokohama Chinatown is the largest Chinatown in East Asia, let alone Japan.
There are about 600 restaurants and shops lined up on the bustling streets in a mere 500 square meters.
Built by Chinese merchants who came to Japan when the Yokohama Port was first opened in 1859, it still preserves traditional Chinese tastes and culture.
This is where you can savor a genuine atmosphere of China while still in Japan.

Yokohama Chinatown is bordered by four different-colored Chinese gates (called Pairo) facing each compass direction, is built around the Chinese shrine called Kanteibyo, which enshrines the god of commerce.
The blue east gate signifies prosperity, the white west one peace, the red south one happiness and the black north one posterity.
