What you'll do

You’ll explore the city’s lip-smacking local food scene, tasting everything from gyunabe, Yokohama’s hearty beef hotpot, to fragrant sakura (cherry blossom) flavored ice cream. Firm favorite sashimi moriawase – a selection of raw fish – is a must-try, as is its less common cousin, shime saba, a fillet of mild mackerel cured in sea salt and vinegar. But if you’re not keen on uncooked mackerel, you could enjoy it as crunchy, breadcrumb-battered, deep-fried aji furai with an ice-cold beer instead. In Chinatown – the largest in Japan – you could feast on nikuman (pork or beef-filled bao dumplings) and a bowl of slurpy soup noodles, or try noodles of a different kind at one of the many soba or ramen restaurants lining Noge’s narrow streets.

Where you’ll go

As one of the first cities in Japan to welcome western travelers, Yokohama has one of the country’s most diverse, internationally influenced culinary scenes. With your host as your own personal GPS, menu translator and elite Yelp reviewer, you’ll explore the lantern-lit streets of Noge on Yokohama’s eastern bay, just a short walk from the Mirato Mirai CBD. This old-fashioned entertainment hub, packed with casual restaurants, tiny bars, and wood-built izakaya, is ideal for sharing a drink and a couple of small plates with your host before heading just over a mile south to Yokohama’s famous Chinatown, where over 600 stalls sell trinkets, souvenirs, and most importantly, a whole lot of impossibly delicious Chinese street food.

    • Eat your way through an especially food-obsessed area of Yokohama with a local host who’ll suggest delicious dishes according to your taste
    • Try several of Yokohama’s most popular dishes at the spots locals love
    • Explore the Noge area, and Yokohama’s Chinatown
