Tokyo - Shinjuku & Northwest Tokyo (PDF Chapter)
Shinjuku works neatly as a day-to-night destination. Morning is usually the best time of day to see Mt Fuji from the observatories atop the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. Shinjuku’s east side really shines at night, with myriad bars, izakaya, karaoke parlours, and jazz haunts.
- explore the crackling neon canyons of Shinjuku, Tokyo’s biggest and most colourful nightlife district, where the vivacity and sheer volume of dining, drinking and entertainment options are something to behold.
- take in the immensity of the metropolis, which extends to the horizon, from the (free!) observatories atop Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.
- laze on the lawn at Shinjuku-gyoen with a bentō (boxed meal) while gazing up at the surrounding skyscrapers.
- restaurants & bars
