    Kishamichi Promenade is about 500 metres long, stretching across the port of Yokohama. It was made by remodelling an old train track that was originally used for freight transport after the port’s completion in 1911. You can get off the train at JR Sakuragicho Station and walk along the promenade, which leads to the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse in the Shinko area. 

    The old railway track still runs along the pavement, giving a sense of times gone by, while the promenade crosses over 3 historic truss bridges. Sit on a bench and enjoy the scenery around you. Kishamichi Promenade is also a popular spot for enjoying views of Minato Mirai's light shows. Visit during Japan's cherry blossom season to appreciate the blooming cherry trees along the promenade.

    Upon the opening of the Port of Yokohama in 1859, many traders migrated from China and formed the city's Chinatown as they settled here in Yokohama. However, due to the Sino-Japanese War in the Meiji era, the early Chinese settlers left the area, and it eventually transformed into a town of cuisine featuring restaurants operated by Cantonese people. Today, as many as 250 Chinese restaurants can be found here, with the area famous nation-wide as a foodie destination that is unique to Yokohama. Of these restaurants, 12 have continued to operate for more than half a century, and the oldest is Heichinrou.

    At the Yokohama Honten (Main Store), which has more than 50 chefs, you can enjoy Cantonese cuisine carefully prepared with an emphasis on authentic flavours. Along with the Zenrinmon-gate on Main Street, the other 9 Chinese-style gates are also worth a look. In 2013, a new service called "Concierge" was launched to provide directions. They are all volunteers and are identified by their "Guide" armbands.
