Walked and ate in Chinatown

by Amethyst

 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.

19 hours ago Traveler: Arthur -   Tour Guide: AKIRA

We booked Akira for a tour for one of our 6 days in Tokyo. We figured we could navigate through the more well known areas ourselves so we asked Akira to show us some of the lesser known, “hidden gems” of the city. He did exactly that and took us to some beautiful temples, shrines, and gardens that were not packed with other tourists. For lunch, Akira took us to a local restaurant that had some sim...

Junko was very informative and adaptive. My three days with her were not your typical see the Sights. Being a foodie , led to some off the beaten path not usually requested places. Combine that with the "normal" tour activities it was a very enjoyable time. She is extremely organized and able to help with translations and directions. I would recommend her without hesitation. Especially for custo...

Hiroko is very informative and was able to come up with a great tour plan without much direction from us. We arrived in Tokyo and just told her what we didn't want to see (because we already had some other tours lined up that would cover those things). She came up with a great itinerary on the spot. She took us to Asakusa-jinja shrine and explained to us how the prayer and washing ritual work, whi...
