Omoide Yokocho

West Area

  • izakayas

The Shinjuku West Exit Shopping District is often called Omoide Yokocho or Yakitori Yokocho. The area got its start as a market where the shops were separated by a wall made of a single layer of wood in the chaotic aftermath of the Second World War when the Shinjuku area emerged as a transportation hub. Although the scale of Omoide Yokocho has gradually shrunk as the area around Shinjuku Station has developed, many small eateries and bars remain to this day.
