(3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Famous for its eclectic bars and architecture, Shinjuku Golden Gai provides visitors with a slice of authentic Tokyo nightlife. Though this area contains only six alleyways, with a few additional narrow passages interconnecting them, it boasts over 200 bars, clubs, and restaurants. Many of these shack-like spots commit to a particular theme, such as jazz or punk rock, while others cater specifically to movie buffs, artists, musicians, or celebrities.
