What to do in Yokohama!
I understand that Yokohama is not in Tokyo but I figured that a day trip to Yokohama is an option if you plan on staying in the Tokyo area!
Take a stroll through Japan’s biggest Chinatown! There are plenty of small and big shops and food stalls around. There are places where you can get fish pedicures. Also, there are lots of restaurants as well!
Near Chinatown is a chinese shrine, Kanteibyo. You can learn or offer prayers in the proper Chinese way.
If you have some free time, head over to a theme park near Yokohama’s piers! There are VR experiences, rides, and more! Sometimes you can catch a festival or live show nearby.
Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum
If you want to try ramen from multiple places around the world all in one place, you have to go here! There are two floors set in a 1950s japanese decor. It is a little expensive: there is an entrance fee and you have pay for every ramen bowl you get. Lines get pretty long during peak hours but you can get a stamp to return once more without paying an entrance fee. (hint: buy the smallest bowls each time if you want to try more than one shop)
Cup Noodles Museum
Now, if you like cup noodles more than authentic bowl, then head to this museum instead! you can customize your own cup noodle and eat it there!
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
This is an 80s style bar where there are drinks and cocktails from almost anywhere. All drinks are about 5 bucks and great thing is that there is no table charge!
