Attractions of the East Area

Revel in the nightlife! Check out an izakaya and a show

Called the “Sleepless Town,” Kabukicho is home to many izakayas (pubs) and bars open till late at night, and the cheerful streets are filled with throngs of people. Check out Robot Restaurant, a restaurant/bar featuring a pop-culture show with explosive sound. The dancers, robot monsters and laser lights make this a popular place to go.

Everything from Department Stores to Electronics Retailers! Shop to Your Heart’s Content

This is a great place for buying gifts and much more. Among the big draws in the area are BICQLO, which has cameras, home appliances, computers and audio equipment, as well as clothing and seemingly everything else, and Don Quijote, one of Japan’s biggest general discount retailers.
