Kabukicho, Kabukicho

1.0
Experience the lively nightlife of Kabukicho, Shinjuku’s famous entertainment district, known for its thousands of bars, nightclubs, and movie theaters, but also hostess clubs and love hotels. Although known as a “red light district,” the area doesn’t contain official brothels. Instead, it houses a large number of expensive host and hostess clubs, striptease joints, and “pink salons,” usually run by members of the yakuza, sprinkled among the bars and restaurants. Regardless of its reputation, the district remains very safe to explore, with numerous options for dining, shopping, and places to have a drink. Put Kabukicho into our Tokyo visit planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
