This shopping street is literally shops along sidewalk. It is near to Chinatown, you just need to pass on the bridge. There is a lot of shops for jewelries, gold and silver. There are also international shops around.

Yet another shopping street of Yokohama. Unlike China Town, here you will get items from other parts of the world as well. Good for a stroll. There are many shops, restaurants and coffee shops inclusive of one Star Bucks :)

This is one of our favourite streets. There is a Starbucks at the start to help you drift along the shops. Got my wife a lovely purse from Louis Vuitton and just a nice shopping experience.
