The Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Shinjuku Tokyos New Business Center

Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower

Shinjuku Tokyos New Business Center

Shinjuku Tokyo's New Business Center

Shinjuku Tokyos New Business Center located in Tokyo Metropolis. It is a major commercial and administrative center, housing the busiest train station in the world and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building.

Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower is a 204-meter, 50-story educational facility located in the Nishi-Shinjuku district in Shinjuku. The building is home to three educational institutions.

Shinjuku is the busiest train station in the world

West of the station

 Nishi-Shinjuku: The area west of Shinjuku Station, historically known as Yodobashi, is home to Tokyo’s largest concentration of skyscrapers. Several of the tallest buildings in Tokyo are located in this area, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, KDDI Building and Park Tower.

From Skyscrapers to tiny restaurants

Shinjuku Tokyos New Business Center

There is an incredible diversification in Shinjuku, everything from modern skyscrapers to tiny “hole in the wall” restaurants.

Meet my new best friend

Shinjuku Tokyo's New Business Center

Here I am with y new best friend in the little “no name” restaurant that sits only 3 people, 4 at a squeeze.

Food was average, wine was excellent

Shinjuku Tokyo's New Business Center

I was not worried about the food being very average & overpriced, the experience was well worth it. My friend Kayo had given me a lovely present, a nice bottle of red & a bottle of sake. So I drank the red at this tiny “no name” restaurant.

Here is my present from Kayo

Japanese people are so nice, they love to give you presents. I will look forward to returning the favor when Kayo visits Thailand in August.

We met on the Gold Coast in Australia 10 years ago and it was great to catch up again in Tokyo.  

Kabukicho is in Shinjuku

 Kabukicho is in the heart of Shinjuku and right next to the railway line is one of my favorite places, Piss Alley.

 Piss Alley is a quaint Tokyo Street in Shinjuku which really has a distinctive personality. Known also as Memory Lane however I think Piss Alley has a far better sound to it.  :lol:

My favourite Japanese song
