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.
