Time Out says

One of the smarter moves in the redevelopment of Yokohama's bayside Minato Mirai area was the decision to preserve these former customs houses, which date back to the early 20th century. The two warehouses (known as 'akarenga' in Japanese) survived the 1923 Kanto earthquake thanks to iron reinforcements, and emerged unscathed from WWII.

The No 2 building underwent redevelopment in 2022 and is now home to a refreshed selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Popular breakfast spot Bills is still here after the renovations, alongside a Disney Harvest Market for Mickey Mouse-themed meals, environmentally-friendly houseware store Sustainable Think and craft chocolate maker Chocola Meets, to name but a few of the 66 stores.

It's not all about shopping here, though. The No 1 building gets used for a wide range of events, including exhibitions and performances.

What’s on

Yokohama Oktoberfest

  • Food and drink events

Among the many Japanese incarnations (perhaps 'interpretations' would be more accurate) of Munich's world-famous beer festival, the Yokohama Oktoberfest has traditionally stuck closest to the schedule of its Teutonic forebear. Yokohama Oktoberfest is Japan's largest beer festival, and you can expect over a dozen stalls offering both German and local brews. On top of the standard pints, some will be offering glasses of wine, highball and cocktails, too. Pair your drinks with platters of sausages and goulash, among other hearty meals. As always, a separate tent will be set up to host live performances and other forms of entertainment. Entry costs ¥500 at the door, or ¥300 if purchased via the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse app. Your first beer will include the cost of a beer glass, which you’ll need to use throughout the day. Once you’re ready to leave, you can return the beer glass to get your deposit back.
