Busy area in Shinjuku. It’s open late if you’re looking for food and shopping. Make sure you don’t get invited to the bar by those people standing on the street. They’ll rip you off.

This area of town has an unfortunate reputation of being dangerous - maybe by Japanese standards, but not by anyone else's. Crazy lights, people, nightlife.
