SHINJUKU

Shinjuku is Tokyo’s major commercial and administrative hub, home to the busiest train station in the world. By day, you can take in the views from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building or explore the stunning parks and gardens such as Shinjuku Gyoen. As the sun sets, neon lights flicker on transforming the area into a fun, futuristic wonderland. If you only have one night out in Tokyo, this is the place. For wow-factor, check out Kabuki-cho red light district and Golden Gai, full of tiny bars. For the LGBTQ community, head to Shinjuku ni-chome which is full of fun and friendly places to dance or drink the night away. With so much to do, you could simply wander for hours and discover something new. But, for the lowdown on the best things to do in Shinjuku, check out the articles below.
