Tokyo Neighborhoods • Shinjuku
Shinjuku is one of the two major corporate skyscraper clusters in Tokyo(pics) (the first one being Marunouchi(pics) near Tokyo station). A good time to visit is during the weekdays at lunch time as the streets get busy with salarymen and professionals working in the towers nearby.
