Chinatown-International District

As one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, Seattle's Chinatown-International District is rich with history and culture. For many years the district has served as the cultural hub for Pan-Asian Americans in the area, with Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Vietnamese and Southeast Asians living and working together in the "I.D." Highlights here include specialty gift shops, Dim Sum and other Asian restaurants, the nationally acclaimed and Smithsonian-affiliate Wing Luke Museum, the mega Asian grocery and specialty market Uwajimaya, and Kobe Terrace, a terraced hillside park adorned with Mt. Fuji cherry trees and laced with ground vines and pathways. Multicultural festivals each year including the Bon Odori and Moon festivals, and the Lunar New Year celebration.
