#1 in Tokyo

Shinjuku is one of Tokyo's most famous districts for several reasons.

First, the Metropolitan Government has its offices in this fascinating economic powerhouse which is home to 310,000 inhabitants in just over seven square miles (18 km²). It contains a sight known as the "skyline" of the capital: a series of skyscrapers each more impressive than the next.

But Shinjuku itself is divided into several colourful neighbourhoods (including Kabukicho, Okubo and Takadanobaba) and is home to one of the largest parks in Tokyo, Shinjuku Gyoen.

By day or by night, the district is a must for going out or to discover the electric capital, and its railway station is the busiest in the world with several million passengers every day.

How to get to Shinjuku

Shinjuku is one of the biggest stations in Tokyo. This is often the starting point for excursions to the west of the capital.

Many lines pass there, either by JR train (Yamanote, Chuo, Saikyo, Shonan...), subway or buses.
