We stayed at the hotel in Yokohama and visited this China Town. This one of the tourist attraction in Yokohama. We have spent there about two hours just walking the street, trying Chinese food and enjoying the crowd. Vet clean, colorful and comfortable place to...More

A friend took us here - so many streets of yummy Chinese snacks and comfort food, Chinese temple, and shops selling everything - we found the side streets had cheaper pork buns than in the main tourist streets.
Had recommendations to come to the biggest Chinatown in Japan. But other than many restaurants that sell similar Chinese food (and these were just average in taste but tourist-priced!), there was nothing exciting about the place. Nothing to shout about and can be missed!
The Yokohama chinatown can be reach by the subway or walking. We walked from the Cup noodle museum which took about 20 minutes. As it was the winter month, there was cold wind blowing so it was not tiring.
The chinatown consist of a few...More
A great place to come sightsee, tourist friendly. Many little pockets of surprises in the little alleys lined with lotsa shops and restaurants. I highly recommend to visit the chinese temple While you’re here
An abundance of restaurants and eclectic shops. The restaurants range from up-scale, to casual, to take out windows. A popular tourist destination and high school field trip spot. I saw multiple groups of teens from different schools shopping and dining in the area.

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.
