EAST SHINJUKU (HIGASHI-SHINJUKU):

In Higashi-Shinjuku (East Shinjuku) you find large department stores, wide roads with neon lights, hotels and casinos as well as more normal residential areas, such as the one where our first hotel was. East Shinjuku, the district to the East of Shinjuku Station, only has a few skyscrapers, in contrary to West Shinjuku (Nishi-Shinjuku) where the CBD is. Yasukuni-dori is the busiest avenue, filled with neon signs and very modern buildings that houses department stores (such as Isetan), gaming arcades, residential buildings, hotels etc. It is a very typical Tokyo road and goes to Shinjuku Station, the huge railway station that is one of the largest in Tokyo. Studio Alta is a shopping galleria for young people with fashion stores, a theater, a café and record stores. In Japan CDs, LPs and music cassettes are still very popular. Kabukicho is the entertainment area in Higashi-Shinjuku. Shinjuku Gyoen is a beautiful park. Both these can be found in their own sections.
We stayed at two different hotels in Tokyo, one was in East Shinjuku; we spent 5 nights at the 3-star, 13-storey Listel Hotel Shinjuku. It has 263 rooms and one restaurant. The hotel was nothing special but a valuable hotel for the money and the staff was friendly. The location is very central, a short walk to central Shinjuku and Shinjuku Station.

KABUKICHO:

Kabukicho is an entertainment and red light area just East of the tracks of Shinjuku, filled with narrow pedestrian streets and neon signs. Here you find the famous Robot Restaurants, rock clubs (of which 4 metal clubs), casinos, café and the Shinjuku Toho Bldg (Gracery Hotel) where Godzilla appears, roaring on top of the building's IMAX Theatre, on the edge of Godzilla Road. Ren American Bar is a very colourful and decorated, but also very tacky building. Kabukicho is one of the least safe areas of Tokyo with yakuza members, illegal clubs and brothels. We saw lots of African barkers on the streets. It is still much safer then most similar areas in Europe and America. Golden Gai is another nearby entertainment district with lowrise buildings.

BUNKYU:
- Bunkyo ward, Kodokan Judo Institute, Bunkyo City Hall, Tokyo Dome, Tokyo Dome City

Bunkyō is a special ward that is situated just north of central Tokyo. It is a lively residential and educational center, the name literally means ”Literature Capital”. Many scholars and politicans have lived there. It is famous for the Tokyo Dome, a futuristic stadium building with round shapes, illuminated after dark. It is nicknamed ”the Big Egg” and opened in 1988. Many concerts with world artists have taken place there. Adjancent to the dome is Tokyo Dome City, an entertainment complex with a rollercoaster called Thunder Dolphin – that goes above buildings and above a trafficated road, a ferris wheel, a mall, SpaLaQua (a onsen spa complex), restaurants and much more. Kodokan Judo Institute, the leading judo training center in the world is situated here. It was founded in 1882 by Kano Jigoro, that has a statue outside the current 8-storey modernist building that we visited. A landmark is Bunkyo Civic Center (City Hall), a futuristic 146m tall skyscraper with a circular free viewing platform on the top, called Sky View Lounge. It is the tallest civic center in Tokyo. The modernist St Mary’s Cathedral by Kenzo Tange, University of Tokyo, Koraku Park (next to the dome) and the Chinzan-so and Koishikawa-Kōrakuen Japanese gardens are also situated in Bunkyō, as well as more gardens, museums, temples and shrines.

YOYOGI PARK:

Yoyogi Park, between Shinjuku and Shibuya, is one of the largest parks in central Tokyo. In 1964 it was the center of the summer Olympics, and during the occupation in 1945 it housed the US military barracks. Today it is popular park to stroll, and on Sundays a place for entertainment with rock music and comedians. It is very pleasant to visit during cherry blossom in spring.

MEJI SHRINE, forest and gardens:

Meji Shrine (Meji Jingu), founded in 1920, is situated in a forest just North of Yoyogi Park. It is dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken. Meji Shrine has been visited by many foreign politicans. The shrine is surrounded by gardens and forests, as a Northern extension of Yoyogi Park. The Northernmost part is Shibafu Park, with views towards the skyscrapers. NTT DoCoMo Yoyogi Building, one of Tokyo’s greatest landmarks with its 272m clock spire, can clearly be seen. As a first time visitior, it can be quite hard to figure out where Meji Shrine's gardens end and the Yoyogi Park begins, since it is grown together.

SHINAGAWA:
- Shinagawa Prince Hotel, Shinagawa Station, Daiichi-Keihin, skylines and views
Shinagawa is a ward south of the central city, adjancent to Tokyo Bay. It is centered around the large Shinagawa Station. The busy road Daiichi-Keihin passes by the station and goes towards Minato ward, Toranomon Hills and Tokyo Tower. Opposite the station is Shinagawa Prince Hotel, where we stayed after our trip to Nikko. This 4-star hotel is Tokyo’s largest hotel with over 3000 rooms, 11 restaurants, an aquarium and a 3D cinema. The hotel is like a city within the city, spread out on 4 towers, built between 1974 and 2002. The interior is informal, the 2-storey lobby is large and elegant. We stayed on the 27th floor of the 39-storey main tower. The annex tower was built in 1994 and the Executive Tower in 2002. The only downpart was that the elevator line was very slow, and the restaurants overpriced. Next to Shinagawa PRince is the Shinagawa Goos Hotel (formerly Pacific Meridien) and two other Prince hotels. Shinagawa is typical Tokyo, but less personal then for example Shibuya, Ginza and Shinjuku. In Shinagawa you find even more skyscrapers, shrines, museums, restaurants, stores and 10 embassies.

Question: there were reports that Tokyo was under grounding hundreds of miles of overhead cables before the Olympics. Is that progressing well ? I do see lots of pics of streets without overhead clutter.

I was in Tokyo May 2018, and I started my thread over one year ago, so I didn't see much of this. But I noticed that there are many cables above ground in Japan in general, not like in for example in Sweden where most cables are below ground.

AKIHABARA:

Akihabara is a district in the Taito and Chiyoda Wards in the Eastern part of central Tokyo. It is mostly known for the Akihabara Electronic Town, with its many electronic stores, anime/manga stores and gaming arcades housed in modern buildings decorated with typical Tokyo neon signs and colourful displays. There are also many cafés, Akihabara is the place where the maid cafés were born. We visited Akihabara in the evening, a day when it was raining the whole time. Akihabara Station is a large station. We visited a multi storey SEGA arcade, with numerous video gaming machines on several floors. AKB48, one of Japan’s most popular musical acts (an idol girl group), runs their own theater in Akihabara, and took their name from the area. Just south of Akihabara is the Kanda River, known for a spot where several railway bridges meet, looking lika model train scene, surrounded by skyscrapers - look at the pictures in the end of the gallery- , and the Kanda area, that was part of the original center of Edo.
