Why Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse is special ?

The Red Brick Warehouse (Aka Renga Soko) is a pair of landmark buildings, an artsy shopping center, historic site, banquet hall, and event grounds. It is located next to the port in the Minato Mirai district of Yokohama.

The chilled vibe of the Red Brick Warehouse starts with its unique architecture. It's a massive building complex made of - surprise - red bricks, which are quite unusual in Japan. There are two main buildings running parallel to each other, with an open courtyard-like area in between. The interior of the buildings features the bricks, beautiful hardwood floors, and exposed ceilings. The appearance is very earthy and chic, and makes it a nice place to be.


What to explore at Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse?

The "Akarenga Soko" Red Brick Warehouse is one of Yokohama's most popular destinations for both tourists and locals alike. It's a great place to enjoy a walk or small picnic, or just sit around and stare at the sea. Because of its large open spaces, Akarenga is often the site for events - so there's always something exciting and fun happening.

Inside, you can browse small souvenir and food shops, have lunch or dinner at their several restaurants and bars, or enjoy an evening at Motion Blue - Akarenga's live entertainment house.

The buildings are interesting to walk around from the outside and we were lucky to see many spring flowers in bloom in the surrounding garden. Inside is some restaurants (see my separate review of bills inside the Warehouse) as well as some souvenir shops. Apart from the dining experience we didn't spend long here. It was enjoyable just not really enough to keep my family occupied. We also enjoyed the amusement park nearby, and spent a few minutes observing the bay.

Love this place. Night view is great. Most for trips to Yokohama

Aka ranga is a beautiful old warehouse and it often hosts a variety of festivals year round. Oktoberfest is super popular. We love going here for food, but on the weekends and on holidays, it's almost too busy to enjoy. The stores are mostly all feminine Japanese boutiques, not bad but very specific style. The Bill's is the most popular restaurant here, but it's typically impossible to eat here on a weekend without waiting in line for at least two hours. Kua Aina is a great food option if you're feeling like a burger, but Grip Organic is also a favorite for healthier food. Breizh Cafe, from Paris, offers some incredible crepes. The caramel crepe is my favorite.
