Omoide Yokocho: a lively and nostalgic alley in Shinjuku, Tokyo

  • Published on : 28/03/2024
  • by : Japan Experience

Tucked away near the bustling West Exit of Shinjuku Station, Omoide Yokocho is a warren of narrow alleys that transports visitors to a different era. Contrasting sharply with the bright neon lights and modern skyscrapers surrounding it, this Tokyo landmark feels like a remnant of old, Showa-era Japan. Rustic, cramped restaurants and food stalls spill steam, smoke and chatter into the passageways as patrons huddle over small tables and counters. It's a place where locals and tourists alike gather to soak up the lively, nostalgic atmosphere and feast on delicious grilled meats and drinks.
