    ~Kadokawa Culture Museum

    Introducing Kadokawa Culture Museum, a cultural arts complex with an art gallery, a museum and a library!
    This museum holds many exhibitions featuring Japanese pop culture. We would strongly recommend the intriguing Bookshelf Theater interestingly surrounded by huge 8m bookshelves. The impressive projection mapping shown on these enormous bookshelves creates artwork that is only found here - you won’t get to see anywhere else.
    When you next visit Japan, you won’t be able to say you’ve really seen Tokyo if you haven't visited this museum!

  • Sanagi Shinjuku

    Recommending another “New Tokyo” spot for food. Here in Sanagi Shinjuku, a space produced and directed by Japanese up-and-coming creators, this new style of food court let you enjoy unique Japanese food in a festive ambience with yatai food stalls. Offering a broad menu of options that delight both the tastebuds and the eyes. Why not try to find the very best shot for Instagram?

  • Taito Ward


    When you come to Tokyo, don’t skip all the traditional favorites in pursuit of “New Tokyo.”
    You probably already know that Asakusa is one of Tokyo’s best spots to visit. From Kaminarimon Gate with its enormous hanging lanterns, go down Nakamise-dori Street lined with souvenir shops and confectionary shops until you reach the main hall of Tokyo’s oldest temple, Sensoji. Then follow the path straight ahead roughly 400m and you’ll see remarkably picturesque scenes in every direction. And since this area features plenty of kimono rental shops that will help you select and put on a kimono, we also recommend setting aside your inhibitions and visiting the temple wearing a kimono!

  • Naritaya (Halal Ramen Shop)

    Can’t-miss foods on your Japan trip include sushi, yakiniku and of course ramen! Naritaya is a Halal-certified ramen restaurant that Muslim customers can enjoy with peace of mind. Our recommendation, “Asakusa Special,” is one with a flavourfully seasoned fish-based soup, combined with the restaurant’s original homemade noodles that suit it perfectly. This is a delicacy you’ll want to try whether you're a ramen enthusiast or completely new to ramen. The delicious chicken grilled to perfection is also certainly worth a try. A great deal of consideration has gone into ensuring that Muslim customers will feel at ease while dining, with facilities such as a prayer room on the second floor.

  • Don Quijote
    (presented by the same company operating DON DON DONKI out of Japan)

    Omiyage (souvenirs), items to use back home, requests from friends and family - everything you’ll want to buy when you come to Japan is here! This Don Quijote offers anything and everything you might want for yourself or your loved ones. In this maze-like yet well-organized store, you’ll find whatever you’re looking for at great prices. Come enjoy a delightful shopping experience. Searching for what you want and spending time wandering the aisles is part of the fun!

Of course, it'll be exciting to explore the “new Tokyo”, but we definitely don’t have to forget the very iconic spot in Tokyo - the “Tokyo Station”.
