Koreatown

Shin-Okubo Koreatown is Tokyo’s largest Koreatown, located near Shin-Okubo Station, which is just 1 stop from JR Shinjuku Station. It is the heart of Tokyo’s Korean culture, and it’s packed with visitors who are on top of fashion trends.

Plenty of shops line the area’s main street “Okubo-dori” near JR Shin-Okubo Station, “Syokuan-dori” to the south, and the alley “Ikemen-dori” that connects them both.

Experience the latest developments of Korean culture, including Korean cosmetics and shops dedicated to K-pop idols, as well as popular gourmet Korean foods like yakiniku, cheese dak-galbi, and adorable sweets!
