The neon lights of Kabukicho in Shinjuku, Tokyo can be blinding to the eye for a first timer like me. On the night I stayed at Green Plaza Shinjuku Capsule Hotel, I decided to explore Tokyo’s famed red light district. Right after dinner in one of tiny restaurants in the area, I strolled around to see what’s in for me. No, you’re wrong. I wasn’t looking for one-nights stands. 😉 Really! 🙂
Kabukicho in Shinjuku District (Tokyo) is Japan’s biggest red light and entertainment district.
The neon, coloured lights may not be Las Vegas, but they’re blinking like temptations.
It’s a hedonist’s paradise for bar hopping!
With over 3,000 bars, you’ll find one or two or more that you’d love to try, discover and explore.
Internet cafes are open 24 hours.
There are hundreds of vending machines around, too.
Vending machines for women’s used underwear? Yeah, you can find it here, too. When I saw it, I had a culture shock and my jaw dropped to the ground.
Bars open early but don’t come early. It’s dead until around eleven or close to midnight.
if you think the place Shinjuku sounds familiar to you—that’s because Jackie Chan has a movie calledin 2009.
