Kabukicho, a district of Shinjuku, is a night district that never rests, and it is home to over 4000 shops.
There are a huge number of bars in Kabukicho, including those for die-hard fans and those in search of delicious foods and drinks.
The area’s atmosphere changes drastically after the sun goes down, but it is a high-traffic popular area both during the day and night!
Aside from restaurants, there are a variety of activities available to visitors, such as karaoke, billiards, darts, mahjong, movies, and bowling. Particularly on Fridays, Kabukicho is full of salarymen leaving work who flood the establishments in the evening and leave for home on the first train of the next day.
It is an incredibly flashy and fun area to visit, but many of the shops sell expensive goods, so be sure to set a spending budget beforehand!
