Introduction of the city

typical picture of SHINJUKU

Shinjuku Golden Gai (新宿ゴールデン街), there is a deep area that is hard to come by far in the shopping district of Japan’s best entertainment district Shinjuku.

Golden Gai is a few minutes walk from the East Exit of Shinjuku Station, between the Shinjuku City Office and the Hanazono Shrine which is the guardian god of Shinjuku,it reaches the retro golden town which is also different from Kabukicho.

It is an indispensable spot to tell the nightlife in Shinjuku. The origins of the Golden Street are the black market after the war and the illegal prostitution area. As the legislation progressed, it changed to a general eating and drinking area, and many cultural people such as writers, film directors, actors and so on gathered.

The atmosphere of the city makes us feel good old Japan, a drift in sorrow. About 200 food and drink establishments are lined up there. Recently, young managers have opened stores with various unique concepts, and some shops are open only on Saturdays and Sundays.

The rules to enjoy this city

  • When the store gets crowded, give a seat to the person who came later 
  • Check the charge fees ·
  • Don’t keep up with a tout. ·
  • Ask a few people, not a large number of people

And there’re many touts,you’d better not to follow them.

Apart from the hustle and bustle of the city, people wanting to have experience the Shinjuku nightlife different from Kabukicho go to the Golden Town.
