Shinjuku Golden Gai
A Historic Street of about 300 Bars and Pubs in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho.
A traditional, retro-style bar district in Shinjuku's Kabukicho, where about 300 wooden row-house style shops line the narrow alleyways. Renowned for offering an intimate encounter with Japanese culture.
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.
