Yokohama Chinatown

Yokohama Chinatown takes its origin from Yokohama sea port opening when it was first developed as a settlement of foreign merchants. In 1868 approximately one thousand Chinese immigrants arrived here and formed settlements that have later developed to this one of the largest in the world Chinatown, with its more than five hundred restaurants. The charm of Chinatown is getting even bigger nowadays, with its Kuan Ti Miao Temple, dedicated to General Guan Yu, its Goodwill gate, built to symbolize good relations between neighboring countries and neighboring houses, and Ma Zhu Miao Temple of the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, opened in 2006.
