If you can't visit a hot spring place outside of Tokyo, this place is perfect as it is located within Tokyo. It is located in Odaiba and is easily accessible by the monorail. You receive a wristband when you arrive and you use that wristband for purchases within the area. You can purchase food, drinks or services such as spa treatments. You are also given a yukata when you arrive which you wear inside the area. It really feels like you are in a Japanese festival! They have an outdoor foot bath which you can enjoy with friends!
This place lights up at night time and is really beautiful. There is a really nice shopping mall as well as a car show room. You can also ride the ferris wheel - recommended to ride at night time for a great view!
Very convenient temple to get to just outside the station. It is a beautiful temple however it is very busy on weekends so go on weekdays to avoid the crowd. Also don't forget to get your fortune read (omikuji!) They have translations in English too
Very cute store that is reasonably priced. Their clothes are more "mori girl" fashion. They sell cute pieces you can wear everyday!
Very big drugstore which a huge selection of Japanese makeup and skincare goods. They also have imported goods from the US if you are in need!
This place is a must visit as you can get the same view from Tokyo Tower or the Sky Tree for free! It is located in Shinjuku (about a 10 minute walk from Shinjuku station). At busy times there is a little bit of a line but it goes by quickly. Depending on what tower you go in, they have different souvenir stores.
Located just outside the Shinjuku East exit, Studio Alta is a small department store that has a lot of Japanese clothing brands. It is also a popular meeting place!
Lots of great food here! It's located just outside Shinjuku station. Some of the store are just standing food stores for a quick meal, and some of them are really small stores where you can sit down quickly for a bite to eat. The atmosphere makes you feel like you have stepped back a hundred years. There is a wide variety of different foods here!
This place has many small and quiet bars where you can go with a group of friends (or alone to meet new people!) A lot of the bars do have a seating fee so make sure you look out for that first.
