One Day Trip From Tokyo: Yokohama Chukagai

Hi guys! I just came up with a series called “On Day Trip From Tokyo”.
I am going to introduce places you can go and come back to Tokyo in a day. This could be really good information if you stay around Tokyo.
I came up with this idea because I have lived in Tokyo since I was 21 y/o, I know around Tokyo, I have been some places and I just wanted to introduce those places.

The first episode of this series starts with Yokohama Chukagai!
Yokohama Chukagai is a china town located in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture in Japan.
There are so many Chinese diners and restaurants, some palmistry place and even some amusement park!

When I went to the China town, I took the path to Motomachi-Chukagai station, because I was supposed meet up with my friends there. And it’s the closest station from the China town.

Where to begin?

As soon as you entered the China town, you can see so many restaurants there, some chestnut stands, bun stands and maybe soup dumpling stands.
You could do your own eating there first.

If you got full, maybe you wanna see some places?
There is a amusement park called Yokohama Daisekai(横浜大世界).
And it’s about trompe l’oeil.
Or you could take a walk for a while, there were a temple, and a crystal shop.
The palmistry places are opened at night as well, so if you are interested in palmistry you could go there anytime.
