It was super crowded on a Friday night with lots of restaurant goers and party makers. Lined along the street were also people trying to make a buck out of you by offering seedy shows, massages and sex. If you want to see the red...More
Walked around the area with my wife. A bit similar to the rest of Shinjuku with the lighting. Clubs had guys out front, some holding pictures of girls. A lot of the pictures looked unnatural, like extra large eyes on the girls and similar to...More
...so not really much to see there, beside you have business there. Well...the only interesting thing is how lots of the pimps look like...early David Bowie crossed with Final Fantasy characters...like the essence of androgynous
A must do when visiting Tokyo/Japan
The brightly lit billboards and shops at night are the iconic image of Modern Japan to me. It doesn’t disappoint & is one of the major shopping/ people watching hubs of Tokyo
A must see when in shinjuku min. 18 years old fun place to look around maybe get something to drink if you’re old enough I never had any problems here and I’ve been here 3 times
Don’t go there alone as a girl always go...More
Billed as "Tokyo's traditional red light district", I was expecting something more risque than what there was. Instead, Kabukicho is just like any neon-packed area, with the exception of billboards advertising escort bars located (mostly) on the upper floors of buildings. The street frontage shops...More
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
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.
