YOKOHAMA : Chinatown | Yamashita Park | Minato Mirai 21

Yokohama : 18°C Sunny

Yokohama is located 25 minutes train ride south of Tokyo Station.
Arrived at Yokohama Station at 11.30am, finding our way out.

Every turn is full of surprises - like there's no end to it..

Yokohama has the Japan's largest Chinatown.

Is that really Ginseng??!!

You will see things you hardly see elsewhere in Japan such as bubble tea, steam bun, sharkfin, chilli, cheongsum, lanterns, roasted chestnut.. etc..
By the way, this giant bun is ¥2,100 = SGD33

Had sharkfin at one of the restaurants, the sharkfin is very big, but the way they prepare it doesn't suit my taste.

After lunch, go for a walk along the Yamashita Park.

Walking towards Minato Mirai 21, the seaside urban area.

Reached the Cosmo World Ferris Wheel.
Only 4.37pm and the sky is dark.

Took express train back to Shibuya from Minatomirai, 29 mins.

Continue on Shibuya in the next blog...
