The old-style Golden Gai and its tiny bars.

Small-group walks: min 1 / max 6 participants.
Home to the world’s busiest station, Shinjuku is a major transportation hub and is filled with office buildings, skyscrapers and department stores of all kinds.
Two million passengers pass through the station every day. Many workers, before returning home after work, spend a few hours in the area’s many restaurants, bars or stores.
Not surprisingly, the neighborhood is also home to one of the city’s largest red-light districts, the colorful and vibrant Kabukicho.
Start the walk in front of Shinjuku station and move to Omoide Yokocho, or “Memory Lane” (also friendly called “Piss Lane”), a narrow alley home to countless small, old-dated restaurants selling Yakitori and other Japanese specialties.
Then explore the wonders of Shinjuku starting from Kabukicho and the nearby Golden Gai, a small district made of old two-story buildings filled with tiny bars. Bars line the narrow streets of the neighborhood; each bar has its style and it’s really fun to admire their signs and style as you walk through the cramped, semi-dark streets.
