Entertainment District

Kabukicho is the entertainment district that sits just steps from the east exit of Shinjuku Station. It’s a major hub for izakaya pubs, amusement centers and nightlife spots to enjoy after hours. With neon signs lit up through the entire night, it’s earned the nickname of “the city that never sleeps”.

Kabukicho attracts visitors from all across the world who come to see the hype of dinner and a show at Robot Restaurant, or the all-immersive spy-themed experience at inSPYre.
Ninja Trick House in Tokyo is another spot, giving visitors the chance to try their hand at the thrills of ninja life and Japanese culture.

※The area has added security cameras and other safety upgrades but its recommended to avoid uninvited solicitations or for ladies to avoid walking the area alone at night.

Highlights

  • many spots with late store hours.
  • home to Robot Restaurant, the famous spot for dinner and a robot show.
  • iconic Godzilla statue looming over the TOHO Cinemas Shinjuku building.
  • a fun stroll even during the day, packed with famous entertainment centers to explore.

    東京有名的夜生活區,路口有很多公關在搭訕拉客,不好意思拿著相機拍照,居酒屋內的客人也是滿座,充滿活力的地方。

  • Vivi Liu

    白天都還是很平靜的狀態,到了夜晚就完全不一樣。

  • 苗苗

    來到新宿區,一定要過來看看。

  • DARYL

    在巨大哥吉拉監視下就算是歌舞伎町也應該很安全吧?🤭

  • Jessie Cheng

    在這裡可以看到日本夜晚活動的另一面,走到哪都可以看到無料案內所,據說可以免費幫忙介紹牛郞和小姐,甚至還有提供相片可供挑選,而且都還沒打馬賽克不曉得是真是假?

  • 鄭柏盛

    平常時看不到的警察大人,在這邊一次看到飽

  • 陳隆義

    曾經看過一群男生穿著女僕裝拿著掃把在馬路上,不曉得是在做什麼?路上很多都是一些怪怪的人

  • 張仕揚

    聽導遊說裡面相當複雜很亂,治安沒有很好所以只有拍個照就離開了

  • 林筱莉

    3年前去的時候,晚上真的超級熱鬧!

  • DARYL

    肺炎疫情期間拍到的,人少到可憐,慘不忍睹噢😯
