Go to the Kobe Chinatown! This Yokohama one is a must-Skip!!
Worst Chinese food I have ever put in my mouth. We ordered this roasted duck, since it's a famous Chinese dish, but it was the worst roasted duck ever. The moment you put it...More
The place is nice and so interesting but don’t be fooled by the cheapest food they are offering like less than ¥1000 set menu but rather choose set menu that are a little expensive like ¥2500 and higher. It worth your money.
Having travelled quiet extensively I have seen many Chinatowns and frankly they are all the same (not surprisingly)
Whilst always very colorful it’s basically a string of cheap end restaurants.
Nothing special here.
My motto in Japan is ‘if you see a queue, get on it’ and this did not fail us for the soup dumplings! Yum!
Chinatown is an assault on your senses - absolutely throbbing with people, amazing food everywhere you turn and the smell of...More
I had long wanted to revisit Chinatown because of fond memories from the 1980s. It was unrecognizable. Earlier, there had been neighborhoods, and a feeling of authenticity, whereas now it seemed mostly a tourist trap, with mediocre food and chaotic signs and souvenirs - somehow...More
At Motomachi-Chukagai station(Minatomiral line), walk towards Exit 2 出口.
On street level, look for Chinatown80 and pick up map of Chinatown brochure. Look for blue icon that denotes 'food'.
Check out these street food in Chinatown
a)Tung Fat Egg tart ¥180
b)Endosei ¥500 pork pao...More
Fun to wander around, mostly all food shops and stands. There are several little stores but even wih the sale price (they all seem to have a sale) most everything was way over priced!.
Just go hungry and walk around and eat!
huge that expected with a lot of all-you-can-eat restaurant, however, those was not special but worth to try if you were there. No need to select those with too many choice of dishes as you wont be able to try all in one go !

When you get to Japan you will find Subway maps in English. it would be nice if you learned a little of the language before departure. Words like "Map" CHIZU - learn how to say please and thank you needless to say go a long way in any country. Please give me: O-Ne-Gai-Shi-masu. It's a bit scary getting around if this is your first time going in and out of the train stations, but you can do it with a good dictionary be it a paper or electronic type and a little knowledge of the language. If you have the time try and learn HIRIGANA AND KATAKAN, this will save you because much of what you read in HRIGANA can be easily translated with an electronic dictionary. They use to be very expensive, but you can buy yourself a Cannon Word Tank for less than a $100 dollars now or less on Ebay. Carry a backpack with pencil and paper, your dictionary and "Toilet Paper." So much for the lecture, if you don't have time to learn a little Japanese you should still be fine because most all the train stations have the name of the station in ROMANJI - Romanized letters (English of sorts) Hirigana and Kanji.
To try and answer your question a little better there are two or three Rail Road lines going in and out of Yokoham station and they should be labeled in English as to the direction back to Tokyo. There is a Local train that stops at all the stations from Yokohama to Tokyo and then there are more direct lines that are faster and make only a few stops along the way. The TOHOKU line is the local line and if you get hold of a map it will be in BLUE, if you get on the faster train the TOKAIDO line going to Tokyo it's GOLD in color. Both trains will stop at Shingawa station (6 stops before) just before you get to Tokyo.
I hope this will be of some help to you. Don't just walk up to the station workers and ask for a map, they may shake their head at you. Chi-zu O-Ne-Gai-Shi-masu will get you a map with a smile.
Best of luck to you and enjoy Japan. It's a beautiful country.
