It is the Yokohama Chinatown; one of the biggest Chinatown in the world, located in central Yokohama.
 

There are more than 600 restaurants and shops in only a 2,500 square meter area with narrow streets; therefore, you can choose the place you would like to be in.

To provide such a different atmosphere in the screen, many TV dramas have been shooting in this area.
