Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower
Shinjuku is a special ward 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
There is an incredible diversification in Shinjuku, everything from modern skyscrapers to tiny “hole in the wall” restaurants.
Meet my new best friend
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
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.
My friend Kayo
We met on the Gold Coast in Australia 10 years ago and it was great to catch up again in Tokyo.
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. My favourite Japanese song
My hotel was in a perfect location and a very reasonable price if you book through my Agoda link.
That’s all folks
