Why I Like the Chinatown in Yokohama, Japan

On my way to Izu from Chiba last month, I could not stop myself from routing to Yokohama to have lunch at the Chinatown.  It’s the biggest Chinatown in Japan and Asia. It’s a vibrant place; there’s always something going on especially during festivals. If you’ve been to Yokohama Chinatown, you sure won’t forget the richly Chinese elements in its architecture, like the grandly decorated gates, plaques, and the must-see Kwan Tai Temple and Ma Zhu Temple. It’s interesting to know that the design and location of the gates are combined with Chinese feng shui.

Despite being impressed by the construction style, what I like most is the food. And I believe it’s one of the places with the best Chinese cuisine! There are numerous Chinese restaurants. I always like to try out some whenever I’m there. I’m never let down.

Perhaps it’s homesickness or maybe it’s pure curiosity, when I’m abroad, I like to check out the Chinatown there. I’ve been to some unforgettable Chinatowns in the world and my favourite one is in Yokohama.  What is yours?

日本橫濱中華街讓我留連忘返的原因

上月從千葉到伊豆途中,還是忍不住跑了一趟橫濱,特意到它的中華街去吃午飯。橫濱中華街是日本和亞洲最大的唐人街,總是熱鬧非常,節慶時更是熙來攘往。說到橫濱,到過的人難免想起其華麗及富濃厚中國特色的街道、牌樓、匾額,當然少不了必到的關帝廟和媽祖廟。其中牌樓的設計和方位更揉合了中國風水。

橫濱的建築和街道固然讓人神往,但最讓我留連忘返的還是它的餐廳。橫濱是一個吃中菜的好地方,有很多好吃的中菜館,每次到橫濱我總愛到不同餐廳大快朵頤。

不知是思鄉還是好奇心的關係,每次人在外地總喜歡逛逛該處的唐人街,雖然到過不少富有特色的唐人街,橫濱的中華街始終最讓我難忘,你呢?
