Japan Tōkyō-to Shinjuku City
Shinjuku Golden Gai
Historic nightlife area in Tokyo's Shinjuku City, known for its narrow alleys lined with tiny bars and cozy izakayas.
Tips from the community
Golden Gai isn’t hidden gem or a secret find: this jam-packed district is filled with both locals and tourists looking for a few drinks and a great time. When you arrive at this Japan landmark, you’ll find six alleys stacked with bars (literally — they’re stacked on top of each other). Half the fun is popping in and out of each spot, grabbing a drink with some strangers, and then wandering up or down a hidden staircase to drink some more. Pro tip: most of these bars fit five to ten people max, so not recommended for the claustrophobic!
