Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 160 0022
Synonymous with Tokyo’s unapologetically rambunctious nightlife and entertainment scene, Shinjuku is a city in its own right. With a slew of pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants from Irish pubs serving draught beer to a block of bars east of Kabukicho that preserves the Tokyo of the 1960s, there is never a dull moment in Shinjuku.
The central ward is divided into Higashi (east) and Nishi (west) Shinjuku by the train lines that run through Shinjuku Station, which is merely approximately 20 minutes away from Citadines Shinjuku Tokyo on foot. The Citadines apart’hotel sits in the midst of the action, making it an ideal location for first-time visitors to get their bearings.
East of Shinjuku station lies some of the city’s most iconic department stores. Each store was built and designed to cater to a specific customer, from the popular Marui or upscale Takashimaya to the always-entertaining Isetan, which is a mere 15-minute walk from the Citadines residence. Never miss a chance at exploring the basements of these shopping malls, which are often a paradise filled with Japanese snack sellers, fragrant bakeries and delicate sweet shops.
To catch a breather, step into Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, possibly Tokyo’s most beautiful green space. The park is split into French, English and Japanese gardens, complete with an idyllic teahouse. During the second quarter of the year, the garden turns into a beautiful delicate pink sea of blooming Japanese cherry blossoms.
Other nearby sites worth a visit include the Hanazono Shrine close to the intersection of Meiji-dori and Yasukuni-dori, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Center – an architectural masterpiece designed by noted architect Kenzo Tange, and a site for one of the best views of Tokyo. Visits to its observatory deck on the 45th floor are free.
