This is the largest Chinatown in Japan, packed with some 400 shops within several blocks (0.2 square km). At the four entrances is a colorfully decorated Chinese gate, which leads you to arrays of restaurants, groceries, knick-knack and souvenir shops. Kantei-byo in the town center is a Chinese temple dedicated to the god of prosperity and business.
This is a great place to eat your way around. The famous teamed pork buns are voluminous, and sweet sesame dumplings and roasted chestnuts are a good companion while you amble for window shopping. The town is particularly vibrant in color with night illumination. Some events and festivals held in the beginning of February for Chinese New Year. Japan's three major chinatowns are located here in Yokohama, Kobe and Nagasaki.
