I love this type of street in Japan. Just walking amongst the crowd, findings places to eat and drink when I want to . Very nice.

Motomachi used to be the place to shop, visit the doctor, and just wander around. The shops are still there, I am not sure about the doctors, but the street is still charming and a wonderful place to just wander about in.

Like so much in Japan, the shopping was out of our price range. There were some high-end designers, mixed with local shops and western chains. The best part of Motomachi was stopping at all the little bakeries for treats (Pompodour was our favorite) and then walking with my daughter and picking our favorite outfits in each window. It was a... More

the most interesting part of the walk was the discovery of a building that the town built to accomodate toilet facilities. the place is called 'oasis'. wonderful surprise as the place had a lift to the floor of public toilets and was clean beyond belief!

A place only for the rich to shop in boutiques. It is a street with shops parallel on both sides with beautiful decoration lights.

The street is very lovely; some American shops intermixed with Japanese stores. We had a lovely time strolling down the main street. We walked here from Chinatown.

I shopped for a very nice pair of woolen black slacks there. It was many moons ago and I still have them. They were well made. It's fun to shop there but be ready to spend some serious money for things. There is also a National supermarket which caters to foreigners as well as Japanese who want imported food items... More

I haven't been to motomachi in 20 years, and recalled a bustling retail street. It hasn't really changed, and that is not in a good way. You can really feel how the Japanese economy has stagnated - little hustle bustle and mostly obasan shops, not much for kids.

Motomachi Shopping street is a street filled with different variety of shops such as branded outlets, clothing's, antique, cutlery, jewelry, cafes, etc. Personally, I think this place is overrated, boring and really nothing special compared to so many other places in Yokohama. Only if you have the time, then maybe for a stroll to check out the outlets. I picked... More
