Yokohama: Christmas Market at the Red Brick Warehouse

The Christmas season is upon us again, and even in Japan the cities are decorated for the season. In Japan Christmas is seen as a dating season more than anything else, and it is certainly a great chance to enjoy a romantic date with your love. During a recent visit to Yokohama, Japan's second largest city, my darling and I payed a visit to the Red Brick Warehouse where the German-style Christmas market helped getting us in the mood for Christmas.

The buildings at the Yokohama Renga (横濱煉瓦) were built back in 1905 and were, as the name suggests, originally used as warehouses. These days the warehouses instead serve as a shopping-center, and various events are held at the open space between the warehouses (in August the whole city of Yokohama, including the Red Brick Warehouses, gets filled with hundreds of Pikachus during the annual Pikachu Outbreak event).

Here are some pictures from the Christmas market:
At the event you can find around 15 stalls selling various food and beverages and holiday ornaments.

The Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse is situated about 10 minutes walk from the JR Sakuragicho Station and the Minato Mirai Station. You can get there by train in about an hour from Tokyo. Occupancy rates of hotels in Yokohama is significantly lower than that of Tokyo, so if you're looking for bigger rooms at a cheaper price I would recommend using Yokohama as your base to explore the area, especially if you have the JR pass.

Either way, the Christmas Market is open every day until December 27th, so if you're in the area I would recommend to stop by and check it out.

The classical story about a girl who went for a one-year exchange program to Japan, fell in love and got stuck there. Starting out as a student in Kyoto in 2010 I now work full-time in Tokyo as a hotel consultant, and write mostly about my travels, working life in Japan as well as a bunch of random stuff.
