One Day Walking Tour In Yokohama

Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse

As stated in my previous post, my mother and brother arrived here in Japan for an 11-day visit. Instead of touring them to a usual vibe of Tokyo, Japan, I brought them in Yokohama for a different city experience. Having known Yokohama as an expensive city, we brought our own food and drinks when we left the house.

01. YOKOHAMA CHINATOWN — From Yokohama station, we took the Minatomirai Line and exited at Motomachi-Chukagai Station. Our tour began in Yokohama Chinatown, one of the largest and cleanest Chinatown in the world. My mother first noticed the chestnut vendors widely spread in all corners of Chinatown. Of course, it was her favorite. Expensive as it is, I had to buy one for her or she’ll be depressed the entire tour. HAHA. For my brother, I bought his favorite chocolate ice cream with a cute cookie panda attached to it. Since my mother couldn’t wait to eat the chestnuts, we looked for a park somewhere in the middle of Chinatown designated for picnic and ate the food we brought.

She had fun!

02. MOTOMACHI SHOPPING STREET — Before hitting Yamashita Park, we did a quick glance on the Shopping Street of Motomachi which gave us a little bit of Western feel. This was where I toured my BFF Mica and we just hang out in Starbucks for 2 hours. LOL.

03. YAMASHITA PARK AND OSANBASHI PIER — Ten-minute walk northwest of Motomachi Shopping Street is the Yamashita Park fronting the main international pier of Yokohama, the Osanbashi Pier. The majority of our time was spent more in this place relaxing and admiring the view of the ocean.

Obviously she was very excited the moment she saw the park.

05. MINATO MIRAI 21 (COSMO WORLD AND QUEENS SQUARE) — This was the part where our legs began to swell and wiggle. We’re tired! Our last destination was the Minato Mirai area where we passed by Cosmo World and ended our day with an interesting 1-minute escalator ride to Minato Mirai Line from Queens Square Mall.
