People shop more at Landmark Tower than China Town. It opened on 1993, which is quite recent.
The shopping population Yokohama Shopping Street decreased through time. The shopping street started before World War 2 as a place selling food and daily commodities.
Takashimaya is was built a long time ago, and is still popular. It is one of the buildings that are popular now, but the popularity decreased throughout time.
Another example is Yokohama Station. It was really popular for shopping before, but it isn’t popular now.
Costco opened in October, 2004, which is recent. It is very popular now, and one of the reasons is because it is recent.
As I said, Chinatown changed a lot during history because first it was for daily shopping, but now it is more for tourists.
I think shopping in Yokohama changed a lot throughout time, even in about the last 50 years.
This was originally made for a presentation. This is the presentation, that I made.
