Walked and ate in Chinatown

by Amethyst - TripleLights travel specialist

 It's easy to access to Chinatown in Yokohama by train. You may ride the Toyoko train bound for “Motomachi Chukagai” and the final station is close to Chinatown. 

 Yokohama Chinatown is the biggest town in East Asia. There’re 500 stores and more than 6,000 people live in the town.

 After 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, almost all of western people returned to their countries from there. However, many Chinese had been stayed and opened Chinese or Taiwanese restaurants and shops. Then the area became big Chinatown.

 Anyway, we were very hungry when arrived at the town... At first, we visited Taiwanese restaurant (“Aoba”) for lunch. The restaurant has a good reputaiton in the town.

There's always room for dessert. We went to my favorite crape cake shop. We're able to enjoy a variety of fruits made cakes and the dough contains so much almonds. The mouthfeel is very crispy. Please note that the store's frequently subject to being unsold because of lack of almonds.

So that we're full, walked through the main street. Market Street ("Shijo dori") is crossing the main street. There’re a lot of little known good restaurants. Please check Tabelog beforehand!

My daughter wanted me to take to the “Fascinating aquarium" for children in Chinatown. There's a play room for children in the end. My daughter was really satisfied with the aquarium and play room.
