Welcome to SeeVoov,
Where would you like to go?
Shinjuku Golden Gai (新宿ゴールデン街) is a small area of Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, famous both as an area of architectural interest and for its nightlife. It is composed of a network of six narrow alleys, connected by even narrower passageways which are just about wide enough for a single person to pass through. Over 200 tiny shanty-style bars, clubs and eateries are squeezed into this area. In this area, shooting photograph and video on the street is prohibited.

Is an iconic place at Shinjuku neighborhood. Is recommendable to go, not necessary for drinking. But to see I think is a much. In all Tokyo that small peace of old time houses is great. I recommend to go. The bars are very small. Some a bit bigger, but in average small. Nice atmosphere inside, each one have is own soul. Isn't a cheap place at all. Mostly all have a cover fee (a few doesn't have) and the drink prices aren't cheap too. But the area, and because the places are quite small is understandable somehow. Overall, is worthy to see it, maybe get a drink, or spending the nigh there! All depends of your budget! Average minimal drink cost is 1000

We had a very good experience in one of those many very tiny bars. We even got some noodles to eat which was included in the charge. Since those bars are so tiny we also got in contact with Japanese what was a lot of fun. At around 8:00 pm most of the bars are open. The earlier you are there, the easier you get a seat. I think it is a must-see when you are around Shinjuku! Go and spend an evening there and have fun!

Pretty touristy, expensive, really expensive even if you spend the night there, but also really fun if you find the right bar. And this is why I graded the place 5/5. Many bars are kind of empty, you should avoid these because you gonna end up paying a lot for no fun. Go around all the alleys and try to find a bar with both local and foreign people. This is where the fun will be. You will most likely have to pay a table fee (basically an entrance fee) so try not to change bar to many times. Some establishments are fee-free (and some are fee-free for Japanese but not foreigners and vice versa... It all depends where you go) but it doesn't mean they are actually better. You should not choose a bar according to its fee but only according to its atmosphere. This place is worth trying because you can really end up having a great time, but be ready to spend 50$ or more. (In some bars all drinks are 1000yen, be it whisky or just a beer...)

So much fun and what an unusual experience. Tons of the tiniest little bars. They all seem very old and each are unique in their decor and atmosphere. Very intimate setting where the patrons and bartenders share experiences and a lively time. A must see

Minuscule rooms but very clean and comfortable. Everything present in a three to four stars US hotel buy in half the area. Beds are small. Queen size beds are 70% thinner than a US one...
