Inbound League, Not Only a Tourist Information Desk!

Our website Shinjuku Guide is now open as a platform to provide information about the Shinjuku area. The Shinjuku News section you are now reading will be used for introducing Shinjuku’s popular facilities, events, and seasonal tips. In this article, we would like to introduce you to Inbound League, an information center that offers various services and holds Japanese cultural events for tourists from around the world.

Although Inbound League is in Shinjuku, a city that is always bustling with people, it's close to the peaceful Hanazono Shrine. The eight-story building consists of a tour desk, private offices, conference rooms, residential spaces, and an authentic Japanese-style tatami room with a terrace, where Japanese cultural events like Zen meditation and tea ceremonies are held on a regular basis for travelers and foreign residents in Japan. In addition, various services are available for travelers, such as rent-a-cycles, shower rooms, baggage storage, and prayer rooms. There is also a café area with free Wi-Fi service to escape the hectic pace of Shinjuku during your trip.

The tour desk is operated by Ellista, a Japanese travel agency, and provides information not only for major tourist destinations but also hidden gems in Japan’s regional areas. If you are interested in exploring regional areas of Japan, the tour desk can find tours that give you a chance to experience first-hand how local people live. Stop at Inbound League to find your next travel destination and discover what hidden gems you can uncover!
