Inspired by the famous market in the German city of Nuremberg, this Christmas market at Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse features a range of stalls selling ornaments and holiday paraphernalia, as well as festive treats such as schnitzel, sausages, stollen cakes and glühwein. For the best photo ops, make sure to check out the main plaza with a massive Christmas tree decked out in flashy decorations. If you’re still in need of a Christmas present for someone, then join the on-site snow globe workshop (from ¥2,500).
There’s also an outdoor lounge on the first floor of Warehouse No 2 with live music by saxophonist Kensuke Nakamura on December 4 from 6pm, 7pm and 8pm, as well as DJ events on December 11 and 18 from 5pm to 9pm.
Note that you'll have to book a ticket in advance (¥300, free for primary school students and younger children) to visit this Christmas market on December 11, 12, 18 and 19, and between December 23 and 25. On weekdays and weekends in November and early December, however, you don’t need a reservation and entry is free.
