A place that never sleeps. Come here to feel the city vibe 24/7! Keep up the pace when you cross JR station with lots of Japanese Salary men. Enjoy shopping with neon lights and stop by Golden-Gai to have a drink, This shining retro district with more than 200 bars is definitely a must-go. Feel the total different atmosphere there!
Shinjuku is one of those places where you can easily get lost! Not because its streets are complicated, but more because there are sooo many people all over!
Even so,once you get used to getting around its a great place to go for entertainment and shopping!
I have always maintained, that if there is something you want to buy, or a service you want. You can find it in Shinjuku.
I believe this place is far too big for one article. But I digress.
There is quite literally everything here, so I'm quite puzzled on how to review this place.

Kabukicho and Shinjuku 2-Chome are very interesting spots and I recommend both. Kabukicho is the red light district, but to me at-least feels rather safe (If you keep your wits about you) and is a very, very strange place.
Shinjuku 2-chome is home to a plethora of gay/lesbian and transgender bars/clubs and establishments. Its also a very interesting area. I recommend this place too.
Shinjuku is huge, ultra busy and crazy. But super fun. Check it ooouuuuttt!
I like Shinjuku, despite the crowds. Numerous times I have visited here and always had a good time. The square Enix restaurant, the government building, and the small streets packed with bars and restaurants make it a great place for a day of sightseeing or a late night drink.
The area of Kabukicho is interesting, but at the same time, it is the only area that lets Shinjuku down in my opinion. Otherwise Shinjuku is an amazing place, and almost a city in itself.
Shinjuku Station is of impressive size too, and it is easy to get lost; which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
