Out & About: Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku


We had some time to kill before our reservation at the Sailor Moon Crystal Café, so we spent it walking around the immediate area in Kabuki-cho. It’s been years since I’ve been to Shinjuku so it was fun to see everything with fresh eyes.

Gorilla giving a peace sign.



Crows were congregating down this one little alley way. The sign says “Road to Get Rid of Memories”. Perfect for a Japanese remake of Vanilla Sky.


Definitely saw our share of questionable looking dudes and places geared towards adult night life (including a window display of sex toys and dildos just, y’know, hanging out.)


Entrance to the infamous Robot Restaurant. I want to go here some day! Tickets are ~$70 USD per person.

We braved an overflowing Don Quijote while killing time. I picked up these socks since almost all of mine have holes in them.



Stopped by Kinokuniya on the way back from the Sailor Moon Café. After flipping through a lot of unfamiliar titles, I decided to buy the first two volumes of Wakakozake.

A nice excursion into a weird part of Shinjuku. There was a bunch of good-looking restaurants gearing up to open at the end of April, so a revisit might be in our future some time soon!
