Motomachi-Chukagai: The Wealthy End Of Yokohama`s China Town!

I took a trip to Yokohama yesterday in order to enjoy a nice AirBrushing lesson with a friend of mine from B`z Joint. The lesson was really fun and we created a pretty cool T-shirt design for a kickboxer friend of mine who will have a title card fight on May 6th in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

      

The area that my airbrush teacher lives in is called Motomachi-Chukagai, which is actually connected to Yokohama’s popular Chukagai “China Town” area. While I often hang out in China Town in order to shop around and buy herbs, medicines, acupuncture equipment, and other items that are difficult to find or simply too expensive to purchase in Tokyo, I`ve never been to the Motomachi side of the station before.

While China Town is usually bustling with a pretty good mix of Japanese, Chinese, and foreign shoppers and foodies who may also be out to frequent the local dim sum, ramen, or shark fin soup restaurants, The Motomachi side also shares its good portion of shopping and entertainment!

While almost the polar opposite of China Town, which offers cheap wares, and knock-off (replicated brand) goods but expensive restaurants and is positioned within 10 minutes walking distance away, Motomachi is one of the high-class areas of  Yokohama, with many brand-named shops, international food restaurants, a maze of side streets cluttered with small novelty stores small roads filled with expensive luxury cars! The view from the main shopping street instantly gives off an air of Traditional Japanese tastes fused with a Euro-American architectural design!

           

The streets are fairly small and narrow in design, but that doesn`t stop a steady stream of international tourists and shoppers from enjoying the nice and friendly atmosphere that Yokohama has to offer!

If you ever happen to venture into Yokohama with the urge to shop for quality, brand-named goods; Motomachi is the place for you. Enjoy the pictures!
