We were expecting a rainy day so we were looking for some indoor activities. We decided to visit the Samurai Museum. Great choice, it took just over 1 hour and cost ¥1900/person. It offers a history lesson of the different historical periods in Japan.

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
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
