Shinjuku is a business, entertainment and shopping area, which is sometimes referred to as Little Manhattan because of the large buildings and skyscrapers which dominate the skyline in this district of Tokyo.

Tokyo Metropolitan Government is located in the two twin towers known as the Tocho Building and each tower has an observation level on floor 45 which is a popular tourist attraction. The two towers look like a cathedral and were designed by the famous Japanese architect Kenzo Tange.

Another tourist attraction is Kabukicho, which is the most important red-light-district in Tokyo where you will find lots of bars and restaurants.

Shinjuku Gyoen is one of the biggest parks in the city and is located in Shinjuku. It is one of the best places to go during Hanami (Flower Viewing).

Shinjuku has become even more popular since the famous American film, Lost in Translation, was filmed in the Hotel Park Hyatt in this district.
