One of the 23 wards in Tokyo, and Shinjuku Station is the world’s busiest station stamped in the Guinness World Records. 3.5 million people pass through in ONE SINGLE DAY!
Near the station, take a moment to marvel at the 9 skyscrapers higher than 200 meters, the most in Japan. Further down the way, you’ll discover Kabukicho, an entertainment district dubbed “Sleepless Town,” department stores, shopping arcades. If you seek to escape from the concrete jungle, you can seek tranquility in Shinjuku Gyoen, home to more than 10,000 trees. For more of a traditional route, there’s ample shrines and temples to gawk at. A must-visit for foodies is Takano Fruit Parlor Flagship store! Takano Fruits is of the highest quality and the go-to for fruits, and if you love melons, you must try their muskmelon. It’ll set you back about a $100 each, but worth every single penny, err yen! Want to take a blast into the past? Venture into Golden Gai, and get a nostalgic sense of the Showa Era by visiting the many bars.
