  1. […] Shinjuku is like a city unto itself with many districts each with its own character. The hub would be Shinjuku Station, the world’s busiest train station and an essential transit hub to other area’s in Japan. Visit Skyscraper District and marvel at the glass-and-steel skyscrapers gleaming proudly in the sun or visit Kabukicho with its red light district, many bars, nightclubs, restaurants and love hotels. Head over to Shin-Okubo Koreatown and get immersed in Korean K-Pop while feasting at one of the many Korean barbecue joints. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office lets you go up to the 45th floor observation deck for free allowing you to enjoy the beautiful view of Shinjuku from above. Shinjuku is also home to many large department stores such as Isetan and Yamada Denki. And if you need some much-needed rest, walk over to Shinjuku Gyoen for a relaxing stroll in one of Tokyo’s largest parks. Shinjuku is also a nice place for shopping, check out our selection of the best shops in Shinjuku. […]
