    Lots of sushi places inside Shibuya station. Many restaurants to choose from and very affordable. One level is all supermarket similar to Harrods in London.

    Gritty modernity. Less polished and polite than the rest of the city, Shinjuku is one of the largest urban centers within Tokyo. Best known for office buildings and a thriving seedy sex industry, Shinjuku is also home to upscale shopping and Tokyo's largest gay neighborhood.

    Hard to really like it but a must visit. The Park Hyatt (made famous by Lost in Translation) makes for a pleasant escape from the madness.

    Shinjuku is what many people think of when they imagine what Tokyo must look like: towering buildings (some with futuristic architecture), tons of flashing neon, and no shortage of crowds. One of the city's major commercial and entertainment centres, it's a great place for shopping, dining, and people-watching, particularly in the evenings, when the neon turns the district into a scene straight out of Blade Runner.

    After living in Tokyo for a year, Shinjuku is one neighborhood I kept coming back to and never got bored with. It's not that Shinjuku has major must-see sights. It's more just the sheer kinetic energy of the place, with the steel-and-glass high-rises soaring so high you have to crane your neck, and then the humble little yakitori stalls in the side streets around the massive train station. Shinjuku always felt like real workaday Japan, to me.

    My fav hood in Tokyo, Shinjuku is the trendy, shopping area with an edge. Known for its red light district (although they're very picky about who they let in...not many females or Americans), it's not hard to find something to do over here.

    Definitely want to visit Shinjuku in Shinjuku Station. It's a big shopping area, like 5th ave. Even if you don't like shopping, it's good to visit at least once.
