What a quaint yet bustling little city! I was here back in March on a work trip and had the opportunity to explore the locality. Now I won't lie, I think the most exciting part of this trip to me was the FOOD! I am a complete foodie at heart and I LOVE japanese food so I'll share with you a few restaurants I went to!
Fujimatsu. Look it up. Honestly a 5 star sushi experience. The place is located down a back alley behind a bright green door. If you look it up on maps it will take you to the head of the alley. Just keep heading down til you see a blank, green door. Upon entering the atmosphere is dimly lit, very intimate, and quite small. Take a seat at the bar. Don't bother asking for a menu, they only have what is fresh that day. I told him I wanted nigri and he wasted no time at preparing the most beautiful dish of Maguro I have ever seen or tasted. The quality is through the roof. Such an amazing dining experience. Do NOT miss this place if you are in Yokohama. It is a bit more on the expensive side but worth every penny.
Mouth watering ramen. This was my go-to before work each day. A very filling bowl of ramen and if you so wish you can get dumpling with it too which are also to die for. I think I liked the homeliness of this place. It felt very welcoming and humble. Ienjoyed this place alot, especially the spicy miso broth. Ugh. So good. This place didn't break the bank either. A moderate price for an unreal meal that I won't soon forget.
A 24H restaurant that specializes in simple yet filling dishes that come with many sides. I usually went for the Sukiyaki beef with egg overtop on some rice with a side of miso soup and vegtables. That whole thing would run me less than 5 USD, which in Japan is a STEAL of a deal. Convinient that it's 24H too. Such a memorable little place. It was almost laid out like a diner. I could eat here everyday.
Who could forget the famous do-it-yourself Japanese BBQ? I had come here with some work mates on my final night in Japan. I could not tell you the exact name of the restaurant as it was in Japanese but I promise you it was to die for. Any good-rated yakitori restaurant is a must in Japan. You cannot beat the quality of meats they had.
CHERRY BLOSSOM SEASON!
If you are fortunate to come here in March like I did then you will be able to withness cherry blossom season in full effect. Many parks and streets ways will have trees in full bloom and it really is a treat for the senses.
I hope you guys enjoyed my bit on Yokohama! If you have any questions regarding Japan in general do not hesitate to chuck me a message!
