ヨコハマのディープカルチャーストリート「吉田町」へGO!

Go to Yokohama's deep culture street "Yoshidamachi"!

Yokohama Deep Culture Street
There is a "road" that you want to peep into and want to have.
Deep Culture Street
I asked the rumor and went to the place I always wanted to go.
"Yokohama is interesting!" There must be such a discovery here.

LET'S GO Yoshida Town !!
About a 3-minute walk from the north exit of JR "Kannai Station" on the municipal subway. Close to Isezaki Mall and Noge Town!


"Yoshidamachi" is located in the center of Yokohama between Isezakicho and Nogecho. In recent years, it has been attracting attention as a city with different "faces" during the day and at night.


Immediately after entering the Yoshida-cho area from Kannai station. This is a rental gallery "Gallery Miro" where you can display and present various arts such as paintings, prints, and ceramic works.


The organizers of "Gallery Miro" who had just held a group exhibition at the time of the interview. As "17th Ecru", I visited the place where my works such as oil paintings, watercolors, and chigiri-e were exhibited. It seems that they have gathered and held a group exhibition at this gallery for a week. It's nice!

"Bran" from the trimming salon and pet hotel told me that the cute girl was cut quietly. In the clean and calm interior, both dogs and cats were good boys.


It feels good because the wind from the hair dryer is warm ~ ♡

Hoichido Sports, a sporting goods store with a long history, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. “The roadside trees have been improved, making it a convenient and easy-to-walk town,” says owner Shuichi Yasuda.

I found a fashionable shop while walking!


This is "Archiship Library & Café", a store with a slightly unique style, with a book cafe on the 1st floor and a design office on the 2nd floor.


While reading architectural photo books and magazines, you can enjoy coffee and tea carefully prepared. I had a cup of tea during the break during the interview, but it was really delicious.

By the way, the books with this bookmark in this collection are recommended by the staff working on the 2nd floor. Recommended (recommended) "R"! Check it out when you have a cup of tea.


This is from the owner's art collection. It welcomes customers from the stairs. The first floor is also a rental space, so events are held.

Now let's go further. As expected, it is unique to Yoshidamachi, which is dotted with many galleries! The specialty store "Hayakawa Art Supplies Store", which has a wide variety of art supplies such as picture frames and paints, is right in the center of the main street.


When framing your work, it would be convenient to have a specialty store like this nearby.

If you walk further ...


It is also interesting that a greengrocer suddenly appears in this town. The storefront of "Fujiya Ono Greengrocer" is full of seasonal fruits and vegetables.


"People who buy ingredients for dinner, people who come to see the exhibition, people who come to drink ... I think the charm of Yoshida Town is that various people come and go," said the second president of the greengrocer.

There is also a long slide in Fukutomicho Park, and children are playing happily until dusk. I also met a kind mother and son who were giving bread to the flocking pigeons.

In the back road, such an encounter is also ♡

If you walk along the alley in the back, you will see a shop in the distance that definitely feels strange to the old town ... When you approach "What? What shop?" ...

A bright blue building. This was "Restaurant Sparta", which was founded in 1953 and is known as the first restaurant in Japan to offer authentic Greek cuisine.


The interior of the store is also bright with white and light blue as the keynote.

The time is 5 pm. It's about time the "night" in Yoshida-cho begins ... I just crossed my head and found a store that I personally care about just one step back from the main street !! The cameraman who accompanies me I entered the store so that I could be sucked in without even talking to Mr., and when I noticed, I was ordering "draft beer!" ... I'm scared ... (Cameraman, thank you for taking a picture of me ~ tears)


This is Mr. Kurodo, a standing drinker. I happened to be there when the store opened, so it's a big deal (laughs), and when I saw the cameraman who came by car, "Puha!", This cup is irresistible. Regulars on the way home from work also came and toasted with everyone, "Otsukare-sama!"! When I told them that I was going around this time, I was told various things about the city by word of mouth, such as "Did you go there?"
[Business] 17: 00-23: 00 [TEL] 045-261-3357

So, I went to two restaurants where the regulars I met at "Standing Drinking Brewery" told me "It's delicious!" And "It's a good restaurant!". First of all, here is the first house.


Italian restaurant "Chiki Chiki & Tantan" is celebrating its 15th year since it opened in this place. A restaurant that values "delicious dishes carefully prepared at a low price". Many customers come all the way from other prefectures. We talked to him while having an assortment of appetizers, and it was a really delicious dish that you can see that each one is carefully made. (Let's go for dinner next time! By the way, lunch is also open)


[Business] 12:00 to 15:00, 17:00 to 1:00 the following day (Sunday only to 22:00), Monday holidays [TEL] 045-260-2670

And here is the one I stopped by at the end of the interview.


Bar "TOWSER". Although it is a classic shop, it is a shop where you can spend your time with peace of mind even for the first time when the bartender talks to you in a friendly manner.


I had a vodka-based cocktail "Cosmopolitan"! The lime juice was delicious and refreshing. It is also attractive for sake lovers that it can be used until 3 pm on weekdays and from 3 pm on Sundays and holidays ♡

No ~ The shops I found, everyone I met, it was fun, kind and fun ~. In addition to the shops introduced here, "Yoshida Town" is crowded with other industries such as chicken shops (meat), galleries, bars, restaurants, and teahouses (tea leaf sales). Please stop by on holidays and on your way home from work to see the different faces of day and night!
