The Ultimate Guide to Shinjuku, Tokyo's Jaw-Dropping Neon City


If you’re looking for the busiest, liveliest, brightest, craziest area to stay while visiting Tokyo, there is no other option for you other than Shinjuku. Shinjuku is home to the world’s biggest railways station, where more than two million passengers flow through their hallways each day. Just a taste of the immensity of this mini-city.

Shinjuku is the Japan that many people envision when first thinking about visiting. It’s modern, it’s bright, and it’s the location used in "Lost in Translation" (which for some people is their only vision of Japan).

History Shinjuku was originally several different towns that throughout the years eventually joined to make up the area we now refer to as “Shinjuku”. Each of these district does however still retains some part of their original distinctions despite now being lumped into the one title.

Omoide Yokocho For slightly more PG type of fun, explore "Omoide Yokocho" (Memory Lane). The network of side streets to the north-west of Shinjuku station are dotted with tiny restaurants serving up ramen, yakitori and kushiyaki. Cheap, quick eats that pair perfectly with a cold glass of beer.

Godzilla You might notice as you walk, that above the skyscrapers is a life-size replica of Godzilla just hanging out. His head peers down over the buildings, red eyes piercing and teeth ready to chomp. This monster is a giant advertisement of Toho's newest cinema. **Toho** is a film production company most famous the movie Godzilla.





歴史 新宿はもともといくつかの異なる町でしたが、長年に渡り、現在「新宿」と呼ばれている地域を構成しています。ただし、これらの各地区は、現在は1つのタイトルにまとめられていますが、元の区別の一部を保持しています。
