Shinjuku Golden Gai
Located about 10 minutes on foot from UNPLAN Shinjuku. Shinjuku Golden Gai is a small area with many tiny bars and restaurants. If you’re interested experiencing a more traditional side to Shinjuku’s night life, don’t miss stopping by!
*Reason for recommendation
Shinjuku Golden Gai is somewhere that cannot be missed. Although historically it was previously known as one of the more seedy areas of Shinjuku, it later became the more "hangout" type place that it is today. Just walking around the area can be fun and you can feel a type of nostalgic atmosphere that is often lacking in the other more touristy areas of Shinjuku. Most bars welcome visitors, but please take care as some only cater to regular customers and locals.
