Fodor's Expert Review Yokohama Red Brick Warehouses
History meets entertainment at Yokohama's Red Brick Warehouses, just a few minutes from World Porters Mall in the Minato Mirai district. Constructed in 1911 to accommodate trade, partially destroyed ten years later in the Kanto earthquake, and then used for military storage in World War II before being taken over by the United States upon Japan's surrender, today these redbrick warehouses are a hipster haven. You'll find unique shops and cafés, restaurants and bars (some with balcony seating), and event spaces. You'll find seasonal fairs and markets and the seafront areas are a perfect picnic spot.
