The busiest railway station in the world handles more than three million passengers daily. Japan Railways East, Tokyo Metro, Odakyu, Keio and Seibu Shinjuku are some of the companies operating trains in and out of out of this terminal. The station is packed with bars, restaurants, a couple of department stores, and kiosks selling everything from ties to tissues. Coin lockers are also available. The biggest thing to worry about here is the crowds, but they are generally quite orderly.
Yes, there are shops in here. Inexpensive curry and food. If you eat at the curry shop, you have to insert money into a machine and then present the ticket to the cook. Shops with reasonable prices on hair accessories and other cutsie stuff. Just follow the signs since it's easy to get lost.
Shinjuku station was a good place to stay in Tokyo. We stayed in Century Southern tower hotel shinjuku. It was great. Rooms were big and clean. Beautiful hotel. Very near the JR shinjuku station. Lots of shopping places and eating places. Really enjoyed this hotel.
The streets were a bit too confusing but it doesn't matter because it was fun while it lasted. I loved all the lights and the shopping. The electronics there aren't as expensive as it is here back in the states, advanced technology speaking.. and the people were super friendly. I did not have one bad moment here at all and if given the chance, I would go back here.
Hey - I am from New York. I commute through major stations. The politeness does not end. The packing of people into a single car does not either. This station is not for the faint of heart. If you take a train during rush hour - be advised - expect a nice hug.
The station is a great hub. A netro stop in its own right and JR line as well. The JR line is the secret to traveling the city. It allows you to avoid transfers that make no sense otherwise.
Shinjuku station is a town in itself - multiple entrances, several levels and full of shops, storage lockers, restaurants - all you need to live forever. You can also catch any number of trains. Up above are splendid department stores: food halls below, restaurants above and all the fashion you can possibly buy. Stand still for a time and just watch how many people there are - you will believe you have seen every Japanese there is. Down below, amongst the small food stalls is the pervasive smell of Miso soup - you know you are in Japan!
ShinJukU...I am someone who is a frequent traveler to Japan and though I havent seen all the places that one should aspire to see, I have seen quite a few of them... And Shinjuku is one such place....Its a place for youngsters, for fashion freaks, for businessmen, for old and young....It is one place in Tokyo which is full of energy...Its completely unlike the normal Japan that you will come across, its not the usual serene, quiet and peaceful japan...Shinjuku is a place which is full of energy, full of noise...and LOTS and LOTS of people... And this can all be felt from the moment you step on the Shinjuku station...
The sstation in itself is an industrial marvel....Its huge...NO infact...its very very very huge...Someone having a bad day, no Japanese proficiency, can actually get lost inside the station. Yes the station is that big... You have malls, you have lots of different railway and metro lines....people all around you...lots of entrances and exits...different levels to combat...and what not...
Shinjuku is definitely a place which one should avoid not missing during their trip to Japan...HIghly recommended...
Coming from a place called Mumbai, in India...I have never been intimidated by seeing a lot of people on railway stations....but seeing a dummy Mumbai in Japan was an experience in itself...
The verdict is - HIghly Recommended
