Considered the busiest station in the world. Head out of the West Exit to reach the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building
, Tokyo's city hall, comprised of three buildings. From the 45th floor of TMG no. 1, visitors can get spectacular views from the north and south towers (open daily, 9:30 am - 10:30 pm free). You can also find the Tokyo Tourist Information Center
on the first floor (daily, 10 am - 6:30 pm).
North-east of Shinjuku Station
is an area called Kabuki-cho
, which has the craziest nightlife in Tokyo, with many strip clubs, massage parlors, adult stores, bars, and restaurants. The area is quite safe and attracts a mix of business men and students.
