I believe it used to be amazing where locals have a drink after work. But now too touristy. Worth visit! Not a great chicken skewer restaurants. But if you insist to have a seat one of restaurants.

Just don't go in the summer because it's really, really hot and there is no A/C.
The places are clean and the food is good and follows high standards of quality like everything in Japan, they have to follow the government regulations, so don't be...More
Right next to Shinjuku Station this is a fun place to visit for dinner. Yes there are lots of tourists but there are lots of locals too and the food at the small place we chose was excellent. Food on sticks and beer - couldn’t...More
This set of alleys, immediately outside Shinjuku train station offers a host of small restaurants that feature yakitori, seafood, and fresh vegetables. Some places require you order a set to ensure you aren't just eating a small bite for the experience. There are dozens of...More
I've seen this place online many times but ended up discovering it by accident! Unfortunately you aren't allowed to take photos which was really frustrating for me since it looks amazing.
The restaurants are very crowded (literally as crowded as the train, the entire street...More
I stumbled upon this alley of heavenly yakitori food when I was in Tokyo on business staying nearby at the Hilton. It is one of my favorite things I've done in Tokyo. There were many locals as well as foreign travelers enjoying fresh yakitori off...More
It's conveniently located some 50 metres from Shinjuku Station west exit. Was pleasantly surprised that shops were open when we went around 4.30pm. By the time we left, it was really getting crowded. Opted for the shops that didn't speak English. Seems more authentic. Learning...More
All of the one rating comments are true. Literally the worst experience I had in Japan. The vampire cafe comes in second. Try it for yourself! Goooo!!! I don’t understand why people would give a five star rating to a place that has a table...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.
Hi all, 3 of us will be in Japan from 28 Nov to 11 Dec, and are currently in the midst of planning. We have a first-timer to Japan, and 2 of us have been to Kyoto & Osaka in 2011. We will not be driving, and tend to take things relatively slow. We would appreciate some advice on our itinerary please. Top priorities in our intinerary include: Viewing of Mt Fuji & autumn foliage, Tsukiji Market, Gion, Arashiyama (bamboo forest), Fushimi Inari, Korakuen, Himeji Jo, Kankakei Gorge. ...More

Dec456 I think you should book your hotel in Okayama for 3days and make day trips to Kankakei, Takamatsu and Hiroshima/Miyajima, Onomichi, Matsuyama etc.
Suggestions for all-nighter layover at Narita/Tokyo! (13 Replies)
Thank you for all and every advice from you guys! I am currently planning a Chicago-Hong Kong flight with a 20+ hr layover at NRT. I will arrive at NRT at 8:45p on a Friday and depart at 6:25p on Saturday. From my understanding, it would be around 11pm by the time I get to Tokyo, and we should be ready to leave town at ~3pm. I am dying to go to the Tsukiji market and eat breakfast there, so i got the idea that since we would want to be there rather early, we could pull an all-nighter....More

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! so it looks like a trip into tokyo is feasible at least, and i should be able to have a brief look at it before leaving Asakusa looks interesting; are the two main attractions Sensoji and Nakamise arcade? This may sound silly, but are there any public baths, hot springs, etc. open through the night? Also, is there a "Yelp" type website for tokyo where I can find out more about individual restaurants? or recommended food blogs? Are there...More
Tokyo Layover (8 Replies)
What is the best thing to do in Tokyo with 2 solid hours? Here's our situation: We'll arrive at NRT. We'll take the Skyliner and Yamanote line to Shinjuku Omoide Yokochō. Store our luggage at the station then spend our two hours at Omoide Yokocho (Or Golden Gai?). We'll return to Shinjuko Station to grab our luggage THEN take a taxi to HND for our flight to BKK. Is there anything more worthy of our two hours in Toyko? Considering we'll want to take in the best parts of Tokyo...More
