  • Shinjuku Station is served by over 10 subway lines, including JR Yamanote (from Ueno) & JR Chuo (from Tokyo Station). It’s the world’s busiest station!
  • Shinjuku’s Skyscraper District boasts some of the ward’s most delicious restaurant destinations, but note that many shops will close between lunch and dinner hours.
  • Isetan is Shinjuku’s staple department store, a flagship that boasts ten levels, with an impressive market in the basement and rooftop dining that offers a great city view.
  • The Japanese Sword Museum is in this area, showing off the art of sword-making with its small but grand display of blades and hilts, forged hundreds of years ago for the samurai.
