China Town

Yokohama Chinatown is not only the largest Chinatown in Japan but also one of the largest in the world. Its historical significance is deeply intertwined with the opening of Japan to foreign trade in the mid-19th century and the subsequent development of Yokohama as a major international port.


Yokohama Chinatown was established shortly after the Port of Yokohama was opened to foreign trade in 1859. The port's opening was a part of the Treaty of Kanagawa, negotiated by Commodore Perry between the United States and Japan. Many Chinese traders and immigrants came to Yokohama and set up businesses, mainly to cater to the needs of the increasing number of foreign residents in the city. This marked the beginning of Chinatown, which has grown and evolved over the years.

Yokohama Chinatown's historical importance lies not only in its role as a center for trade and the Chinese community in Japan but also in its contribution to the cultural diversity and international character of Yokohama. Its rich history, vibrant present, and enduring cultural traditions make it a significant and cherished part of Yokohama's identity.

Yokohama Tour Reviews

Awesome day around Mt Fuji

Macky took me to multiple places around Mt Fuji I would have never know about. Several great views of Mt Fuji from the various stops. He was very kind and informative. I can't imagine how I could have made the day any better!

Friendly, professional, knowledgeable, flexible, accommodating, and fun!

Our day with Macky was excellent. In every way, Macky delivered. We had a full itinerary planned, and even with a last minute request to change one of our stops from a bike ride to a winery visit, Macky was able to accommodate. If you are looking for a guide that will find a way to squeeze in all that you want to do within a short time frame without sacrificing the integrity of your trip, Macky is your guide. Prior to our tour, Macky sent us a detailed itinerary down to the hour (while also allowing for flexibility). He really listened to what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish in one day and he made it all happen. Macky is a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about Japan who will work with your requests and make sure your day/tour is time extremely well-spent. Thank you, Macky!

Aubrey W.

I wish you and your parents have healthy and enjoyable life. Best regards, Macky Hagiya
