Yokohama Chinatown is the oldest and largest of its kind in Japan. It began when Chinese immigrants first arrived in Yokohama back in 1859, after the port city opened its sea port to foreign vessels. This allowed for a large influx of Chinese immigrants to arrive and form settlements around Japan’s port cities including Kobe, Nagasaki and Yokohama. As a result, these cities are home to some of the largest foreign minorities in Japan today.
