At over 13 million people in the official metropolitan area alone, Tokyo have been the core of the second most populated urban area in the world (entire Tokyo Metropolis have more than 37 million people. Tokyo, high-tech mega city, modern, fascinating, full of cultures and traditions.
Took JetStar Airlines, bloody cheap (RM277), arrived in Narita Airport, took the Narita Express directly to City Centre, and taking Metro directly to my Hotel.
Hotel E Hotel Higashi Shinjuku (Higashishinjuku Station, A1 Exit), Address: 2-3-15 Kabukicho Shinjuku-ku. RM315/night.
Well i am not saying you have to stay in this hotel. What i meant was, you must try out the budget hotel, where the rooms are so small that you cant even open your luggage bag without blocking the walk path. That's a frustrating experience to have! Welcome to Japan. Where space are limited.
And, the entire Tokyo and any cities in Japan is well connected through the Metro and Shinkasen (Bullet Train). Therefore, pick a hotel adjacent to the train station, this will allow you great convenience and flexibility. To travel through public transport, just get the Pasmo Prepaid Card, easy.
Chilling Around Shinjuku
Since we are staying in Shinjuku area, and it was pretty late. So we decided to head down for a quick dinner and check out the night life.
Shinjuku is the home of luxury hotels, giant camera stores and stores (Kabukicho), skyscrapers and of course, Tokyo's wildest nightlife and red-light district(Golden Gai).
|Restaurant Vending Machine|
There are so much restaurant around. Mostly a filled with customers. It was difficult knowing which one was good. We finally decided on this restaurant because of its small, traditional, cosy environment, and the food looks good (actually, because it had the vending machine!).
