Night Out in Shinjuku, Tokyo
Go sleepless in Shinjuku This is a fantastic place for clubbing, eating , whatever. Oh yes, the notorious red light district, Kabuki-cho is also here!
Just remember to Sing Petula Clark's song when you're there....
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
With over 1.5 million people passing through it's train station every day, this central hub offers something for everyone.
The town that never sleeps is a study in contrasts: Tranquil Shinjuku-Gyoen park looks up at dazzling modern skyscrapers. Theaters stand beside Kabuki-cho's sleazy dens of sin. Densely-packed discount shops bid for business with delux department stores, while high-rise restaurants look down on yakitori shacks.
The world's busiest train station is the perfect place to start your tour. A visit during morning rush hour will trample any 'Japanese are polite' myths Trev and Tracy Tourist might treasure. Elbows out, head down, charge for that seat. At night, drunk salarymen steal the spotlight as they scramble for their last trains while dancing around platform pizzas, i.e. piles of puke!
To get out of the madness take the "East Exit" for the high street shopping area and the red-light district of Kabukicho, the "South Exit" for the Takashima Times Square Shopping Center and the "West Exit" for the skyscraper and business zone.
Dress Code: Anything goes here as the Japanese people don't really care what you wear when you're out. :)
For nightlife I think Shinjuku is the place to be.Shinjuku is a city in itself and a very vibrant part of the city. Huge video screensm neon lights, clubs, pubs, shops abd restaurants everywhere.To get to Shinjuku take the Oedo subway line,Marunouchi line,Shinjuku line, or the JR line.
The attmosphere is electric
Shinjuku. If you can find it (very improbable), there is a nice jazz bar called simply 'J' which I enjoyed.
Shinjuku is where Japanese people go to play when they don't have enough money to spend in Ginza. It's also where most of the biggest hotels, banks and department stores are.
Dress Code: Foreigners are always excused for being foreign, so you can wear whatever you want. But if you want to really fit in, presenting a neat appearance is best. Business suits are totally OK, too.
Shinjuku is one of the busiest parts of Tokyo. Lots of people, lots of umbrellas and big neon signs...
For yr business, entertainment or shopping needs in the city-- this is it!
Is particularly well known for its many drinking places and entertainment services including red light establishments.
Tokyo Sinjuku, the city never sleeps. You can see young people walking up and down in this area, some walking to work and others are rushing back from work.
Neon signs of 'pink salons' that promise sexual massage, 'image clubs' for role-play and 'soapland' bathhouses are seen among bars and restaurants in Tokyo's Kabukicho entertainment district.
Shinjuku has many department stores, a big entertainment district, restaurants, and the red light area in Kabuki-cho with sex shops and love hotels.
Night life for working class...
To tell their family that they are working hard but actually hide out at Shinjuku for drink and ....
On the street in various districts, such as Shinjuku.
The lights, sounds, and the energy are amazing. Just let your attention guide you.
