Visited Omoide Yokocho at lunch time and was delighted by the irresistible aroma of skewers and noodles! The coloured maple leaves and lanterns reflected the Fall season, and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Will be back again!

At the Shinjuku station , very narrow steers with small Japanese food restaurants , serving mainly meat skewers . Nice to see . Food not bad but not cheap as expected

This most be the place where I felt most unwelcome ever in Japan. An important part of the food stalls are ran by Chinese people, hygiene is a far cry from most other place I know in Japan. If you walk through, keep walking.

Trails of traditional Japanese style pubs where we enjoy the atmosphere so much. Drink and food are a bit pricey but worth spending time there, easy to go as very closed to Shinjuku station.

"Piss Alley" is certainly worth visiting for food and drink. Many restaurants so small you are bellied up to the counter and your back is against the wall, with maybe 5-10 seats. Great grilled meats washed down with beer, interesting change from the modern areas...More

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and
contains the busiest train station in the world. To
the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo
Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the
east, there’s a district with long-established
department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku
Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the
Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for

Not suitable for a kid. Small eateries, small tables, smoking areas even inside the place. A few blocks down you will hit Shinjuku. There are more places to eat there that would be appropriate for children.

There is a whole row of these places. Hard to differentiate. They have prices and photo menus outside.

We stood outside a few stalls and waited to be welcomed in. Some places prefer locals and don't speak English so they won't welcome you in. The ones with an English menu will. Just stand outside and see if they ignore you or... More
