I want to preface that Tokyo is the safest city in the world. However, Kabukicho is a little seedy. While there are many fun restaurants and safe bars to visit, there are definitely scams that go on in Kabukicho. If someone approaches you to invite...More

Walked by here briefly it’s a colorful street but if you’re looking for food you can get approached by promoters who may take you somewhere shady. There is a police announcement in the area warning people about illegal promoters. Because touting is kind of illegal...More

What can't you get here is probably not worth talking about. Enjoy dusk and evening as the lights come on. Great eating and shopping if your into either.

Worth a walk through but big on lights and not on substance some good food and lots of strange girl bars and the place hums after dark and lots of rooms for hire by the hour which says it all

Kabukichō is an entertainment district with over 300 bars, nightclubs, restaurants, cafés, hotels, and shops. During the day, it looks much like other shopping and culture streets. But in the evening and night, it becomes alive with flickering neon lights and reflects the openness of...More

There is an airport limousine bus stop nearby the Shinjuku Station, better ask your hotel for directions.

Niimura Restaurant in Kabukicho (0 Replies)
I read that one of their restaurants serve both tonkatsu and shabu shabu? If this is true, which restaurant is it? What is the address? Thanks. BTW-I'm looking for restaurants that serve quality shabu shabu and other food options for my husband (other than fish).

Itinerary question (3 Replies)
Hi all Tokyo experts, I have spent quite sometime on the 5 days Tokyo itinerary, and thought to share with you to see if it makes sense and if I have hit most of the spots in Tokyo. I will be staying in Yotsuya (East of Shinjuku) and thought will start my 2nd day in Shinjuku, but find out some attractions are better to go at night, so I changed plans to go back at night and now my day 2 looked unorganized. Also I want to see Sumo in Ryogoku, but found out that they have a tournament...More

I agree with Elly M. You can do Shibuya on day 4. You only need half a day for Harajuku and Omotesando. From Omotesando/ Harajuku you can walk to Shibuya.

I'm in the same situation (staying in Shinjuku to begin with, travelling around and returning for a week but not sure where to stay). Asakusa seems to be a nice contrast to Shinjuku. From what I've heard it is more residential, and it's pretty close to Ueno and Akihabara. And it's pretty convenient if you want to take a day trip to Nikko. When are you going to be there? There might be area specific events that you'd like to make sure you're nearby for / avoid.
