Shinjuku-ku area guide

Shinjuku-ku: is the number one place in Tokyo where people want to work. The majority of the people living there are in their 20’s and 30’s. And even though Shinjuku lacks an idyllic image, it is said “anything can happen here”.

Shinjuku Station is world famous for handling the most train passengers.
It is recognized in the Guinness Book of Records for the 3.3 million people a day who utilize the station and its 15 private and public rail lines. Shinjuku station is definitely the face of the ward.

The “Ushigome Kagurazaka” area is located on the eastside of Shinjuku-ku. This area has a strong French influence because up until 2012 The Tokyo International French School was situated there. However, you can still see many Frenchmen gathering in the area, which has a "Petit France" atmosphere, and enjoy the crepe shops and authentic French restaurants.

A few minutes away from “Ushigome Kagurazaka, located in the “Yodabashi” area, are the famous shopping malls “Shinjuku Isetan”, “Marui”, “Lumine” and “Studio Alta”. Also located here is the well-known night town of “Kabukicho”, which has a variety of popular nightspots. The “Shin-Okubo” area boasts many Korean grocery stores and attracts many Korea fans to this part of the ward. Shinjuku is known for its numerous skyscrapers where millions of business people work and is where the Tokyo government offices are located.

The Yotsuya area, next to “Yodobashi”, has the expansive green zones “Shinjuku-gyoen” and “Jingu-gaien”, which provide an oasis in the middle of Tokyo where people can cool off from the summer heat of Tokyo.

Shinjuku-ku has many excellent University hospitals.
For daily shopping, the “Santoku”, “Maruei”, “Olympic”, “Marusho”, “Sanpei” and “Don Quixote” stores provide convenient choices.

Shinjuku-ku has a population of 33 million people, the majority of whom are in their 20’s and 30’s. And as you can guess from this age group, the rental rate is considerably high at 64% compared with homeowners.

Unlike Ikebukuro and Shibuya, Shinjuku lacks an idyllic image, however, it is said “anything can happen here”.
Because of its convenient traffic system and sub-center of Tokyo, it has always been the number one place in Tokyo where people would like to work. The "Parenting Family Household Residents Support System", which started in April 2012, focuses on supporting the numerous families with young children moving into the ward by providing them with subsidies (including people moving within the ward) and trying to create an idealistic place for young families.
