Shinjuku is probably my favorite area in Tokyo. It has a bunch of cool shops; and at night, it just transforms into a lively scene! It's kinda like Shibuya but I find that it was more... husky in a sense. Also, I love that many establishments are open until late—perfect for travelers like me who like to stay out. I'm definitely staying in this ward next time! 🌃
Get off at Shinjuku Station (the busiest train stop in the world) and bask in the eccentric, flashy atmosphere of Shinjuku! While there are plenty of shopping and dining destinations here, the main draw is its adult-friendly attractions. After drinking along the alleys of the Golden Gai (which has over 200 bars!), head to the red light district of Kabukicho. Experience the bright, futuristic Japan of your dreams at Robot Restaurant, gulp down on cocktails at a hostess bar, and stock up on scandalous souvenirs. It’s quite safe to traverse the area, but be prepared to see (and shut down) countless offers of love hotels and sketchy massages.
