There are Chinatown mainly in Nagasaki, Hyogo and Kanagawa prefecture in Japan. It is like an illusion that you are in the country, China once you step in Chinatown. And, one of very fascinating Chinatown in Japan is in Yokohama, called Yokohama Chukagai(横浜中華街). It is huge Chinatown and famous sightseeing sport in Kanagawa.
626 stores; restaurants, suvenior stores, general shops gather in Yokohama Chinotown. It covers an area of 500 square meters, and the length of Main Street is about 300 meters.
There are several Chinese festivals held in Chinatown through the year. Especially, Shunsetsu is big and most important event which celebrate New Year following the old calendar for Chinese people.
I have been there so many times but I still can’t figure all stores out yet. That means you are never tired of being there!
If you discover Yokohama Chinatown, it is better to have its map with you. To find stores you want to visit, to know where you are and not to lost there, you should take the map (especially, if you are new ther)
Here are several photos of Yokohama Chinatown.
