Shinjuku Golden Gai
A Historic Street of about 300 Bars and Pubs in Shinjuku’s Kabuki-cho.
In Shinjuku’s Kabuki-cho, there is a row of retro-flavored bars dating from long ago. About 300 long, narrow, wooden structures line the street.
Full of little watering holes that can only have seats at the counter, the staff and other customers get very close. With this homelike atmosphere, you can enjoy drinking, even if you go there alone.
While the majority are venerable establishments, there are also many new bars featuring a variety of concepts.
Rather than staying in one bar for a long time, it’s recommended to try many different places on your pub crawl.
Since many places are narrow, it’s better to go in groups of one to three.
This pub street has a retro flavor.
It’s famous for gathering a diversity of cultured people such as actors and writers.
In recent years, many overseas tourists have also visited to get a taste of Japanese culture.
Many establishments open from 7 pm.
