Retro Souvenirs and Collectables Shopping in Yokohama

Yokohama Collectors Mall

The Yokohama Collectors Mall is located in the mezzanine level of the famous Silk Center Building in Yamashita-cho, Yokohama near Yamashita Park. It is wall-to-wall, row-after-row, and counters filled with a wide range of fun toys, antiques, Americana memorabilia, and much much more.

Walk the aisles and take in the ultra-retro, it will make you feel nostalgic for the good old days long gone; the Yokohama Collectors Mall is a great place to window shop while killing time or to pick out a quick-and-easy gift for someone.

Items range from the cheap and kitschy to some really outstanding antique goods. On my last visit, I found a vintage Smith Corona Skywriter for a very decent price. From badges and bottle caps to bags and clothes, the Yokohama Collectors Mall has a little bit of everything - you just have to scour every nook and cranny of the shop to find it.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
