Okay!!!!
Let's see...

① BUSINESS INN NEW CITY Capsule Hotel


※ Only available for men over 18-year-old
Sorry ladies...
We will find one for ladies next time!

Originally, Capsule Hotel is one of the Japanese culture,
where mostly businessmen use it when they miss the last train during midnight. 
Since all the basic facility and amenity are available,
it has became more popular to foreign visitors these days.


Where is this capsule hotel?
Located at Kannai, two stations from JR Yokohama.
Near a shopping street 
that next to China Town, 
convenient enough for shopping.
There ara Daiso, Uniqlo, KFC, and convenience stores around!
Highly recommended to travellers!



Theme of Warring States Era!
How cool are the curtains of different family crests!

And, well-equipped facilities outside the room!




Theme of Ninja

Tiny stickers of Ninja can be seen inside the capsule!
"I am a Ninja!"
Transformer lol



Next, let's take JR from Kannai Station to Ishikawa-cho Station by Negishi Line.
Heading to Mutekiro!




Motomachi was originally a quiet farming and fishing village until 1859, when the Port of Yokohama was opened. Since then, the close-by Kannai district became the foreigners' business district, and the adjacent Yamate and Yamashitacho districts became the foreigners' residential districts. Situated in-between, with Yamate to the east, and Kannai and Yamashitacho to the west, Motomachi became frequented by many foreigners. Shops and businesses were opened, catering to the needs of foreigners.

③ Uchiki Bakery




A local bakery loved by the locals for over 128 years!

As a toast
with jam, butter or peanut butter?

Taste has never changed for 128 years!


④ Minatomieruoka Park



Like locals, 
get the new baked bread from Uchiki bakery, 
then climb up to this park.
While enjoying this wide and opened view,
it is show time of the "England" bread!




Since it is not sliced yet,
let's have it wildly!




Soft enough to tear it by mouth lol
