Drinks & Nightlife
It's literally alley with small bars, restaurants where you can eat and drink at a relatively cheap price. The ambiance as you enter the alley definitely says adventure. If you like to eat and drink, you'll enjoy your experience. I found the staff of numerous restaurant to be warm and entertaining. I only discovered there was an English menu available after I ordered my meal. Ask for an English menu at the restaurant you choose as they may have one. If they don't, live a little and be adventurous. Pick a restaurant, have a beer or three and order some finger food. If you're in Tokyo, you must go!

The best time to go to Kabukicho would be at night, the nightlife had some crazy vibes as all the lights lit up and convenient areas to drink at bars. There's so much action all the time! They say New York's the city that never sleeps, but this place sleeps way less than the big apple!

The Yamanote line takes you to Harajuku station from Shinjuku and the entrance to the shrine is just behind the station. The loveliest part is the long stroll through beautifully kept grounds, as the tall trees have formed green arches over the paths. The Japanese cicadas are deafening and make a fascinating sound! The shrine itself cannot be entered, but the stroll around pristine gardens is the true highlight. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1066456-d1373780-Reviews-Meiji_Jingu_Shrine-Shibuya_Tokyo_Tokyo_Prefecture_Kanto.html

If you leave the park through the Shinjuku gate and follow the curving road for one block, you will see a Doutor coffee shop and Starbucks on your left. Turn left and you will be on Yasukuni Street. Cross it, and pretty soon you will see the gates leading to Hanazono Shrine on the right.

Stopped in after Meiji Shrine visit, not a large museum but definitely cool. Make sure to pickup the English version of the "Manual for Appreciating the Japanese Sword" when you enter the exhibit. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1066456-d2419643-Reviews-The_Japanese_Sword_Museum-Shibuya_Tokyo_Tokyo_Prefecture_Kanto.html

Great thing to do in Tokyo, the museum has lots of examples of Japanese armour, weapons and other things. You can try going for a tour of the museum, and the staff seemed interested in their subject and very positive and enthusiastic to talk about it to visitors. They let you try on a helmet and wield a katana Worth the ticket price!

My favorite shopping destination As a beauty brand marketer, this has been my favorite place for market research. The cosmetic sections are amazing including the organic cosmetic floor on the bottom. Also, the accessories are great too. For me, this is a great place even just for eye shopping. The food court is must to visit. If you need a table, go upstairs. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g1066457-d480640-Reviews-Isetan_Department_Store_Shinjuku-Shinjuku_Tokyo_Tokyo_Prefecture_Kanto.html
