It was a shopping mall, with not the most shopping options but had quirky stalls amongst the fashion outlets. A very 'young fashion' location, with HMV Records on the top floor. There is a cafe at the basement, called Hand Drip Coffee, i think. Try the pancakes. That is one thing you shouldn't miss. Nothing else fantastic here. Walk through... More

It was a great passing by. Lots of memories over the years. There's lots of people crossing the road. A good place to take pictures.

Not sure why this has got ratings as an 'attraction' at all... It's just a rather average building which houses stores and restaurants with a big screen (although there are plenty bigger screens around Tokyo) that plays advertisements?! You'll see it as you come out of Shinjuku Station East Exit and its almost next door to the arch entrance to... More

Popular meeting spot, you cant miss the gigantic screen, only problem is it feel like half the population of the world are also in on it!

Not sure why you'd actually go here. It's a big meeting point, and possibly a bit of a landmark. Packed full of restaurants. Lots of youthful energy. But so are many other places in other parts of town. Go to Shibuya or Shimo Kitazawa instead.

This place is used to be famous as a place to meet with friends in 1980s, (literally and as a studio for famous TV program) but now the area is so crowded and small, I do not think it a good choice to walk around the area. The big screen is not a big surprise anymore, and when you go... More
