Christmas Market at the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse

Christmas Market in Akarenga

The "Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse" is beloved by both locals and tourists as a symbol of Yokohama. The 1st building is on the right side facing Yokohama Port, while the 2nd building is on the left side across the plaza. Originally, these warehouses were built in 1911 and 1913 to temporarily store goods whose import procedures from overseas were not yet completed in the rapidly developing Yokohama, a hub of foreign trade. All the bricks used were domestically produced, with nearly 3.18 million bricks used for the 2nd warehouse alone. Although their role as warehouses ended in 1989, they underwent extensive renovations for about 9 years and were reborn in their current form in 2002.

The historic Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse holds a Christmas market every winter. Inside the venue, you'll find a 10-meter-tall live Christmas tree illuminated with lights, and adorned with decorations such as German huts and ornaments, creating a festive atmosphere and adding glamour to Yokohama's night view. The collaboration between the red brick warehouse and Western culture highlights the charm of Yokohama, which has prospered by incorporating foreign cultures as a port town.
