Bar Area

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.

Highlights

  • 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.

    個人認為這裡是新宿最有氣氛的地方,雖然疫情期間有點冷清。
    但願有一天能回到以前🙏

    歐美觀光客相當喜歡來的地區,每一間酒吧都是小而美而且都各自有特色。

    夜晚每個人酒酣耳熱,熱鬧的氣氛夾雜著喧鬧聲,體驗日本居酒屋文化~

    歌舞伎町內最具代表性的文化就是黃金街,狹長的巷弄內充滿著濃厚的日本懷舊氣息,每一間的店舖都不大,大概四、五坪左右⋯在這邊喝個小酒任何人很快就活絡起來,也有很多外國人來這裡嚐鮮,是一個結交朋友的好地方😊
