Yokohama Chinatown is the best Chinatown in the world.

What other Chinatowns have you been to?

I agree with Ms Woolf, simply because I am afraid of her.

Yokohama's seems far less tacky compared to New York's, London's and San Francisco's, Birmingham (UK) and my own hometown's, Newcastle upon Tyne. And yes, Aly, I've been to them all.

As have I. I find them better because they are more authentic.

I love going here to feel like a tourist. But if you want the best Chinese food in Japan, Ikebukuro Kitaguchi is the place to go!

I do not prefer the Kanto Region nor much of eastern Japan for that matter except for Akita and Aomori, however there is one place I really enjoy to visit in the Kanto Region and its Yokohama. If I have to go to Kanto I always stay in Yokohama and my favorite spots here are Yokohama Ko, Yamashita Koen, and China Town. Excellent food and a great place to walk around both day and night.

I always enjoy that Chinatown every time I'm in the Kanto area. That place never dissappoints!

If you go to the Ameya Yokocho (Ame-Yoko) street that runs along the JR tracks between Ueno and Okachimachi you can find tiny shops offering authentic Chinese light meals and snacks, like doujiang (hot soya milk) with youtiao (deep-fried crullers) that I haven't seen in Yokohama. And the prices are incredibly cheap. Actually the area around Ueno is full of Chinese restaurants. Likewise Nishi Kawaguchi, across the Arakawa River from Akabane on the Keijin Tohoku Line. Most of the eateries there -- it's a big ethnic community -- are in Northeast China style, offering local dishes like grilled strips of mutton on skewers. The portions are enormous. Clientele is probably 75% Chinese.

And oddly enough looks like any other side street in Japan.
