Shinjuku neighborhood is the largest in Tokyo and also among the world's largest. It is more likely that your trip will end without discovering the entire neighborhood. Below are highlights which you can access on foot and shouldn't miss while there:
-Shin Okubo Koreatown: is recognizable at a glance, with its ubiquitous posters of K-pop singers along the streets, scores of shops and restaurant signs written in Hangul offering up all things South Korean, from imported cosmetics and CDs to Korean barbecue and kimchi.
-Omoide Yokocho (思い出横町):literally memory lane is a series of tiny alleyways along the northwest tracks of Shinjuku Station. The area is filled with tiny cheap restaurants. The streets of Omoide Yokocho look much like Tokyo did before WWII.
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building: standing 202 meters above the ground, this building has gain recognition as a major observatory of Tokyo City. From there Mt. Takao and Mt.Fuji can be viewed on a clear day.
-Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden: was constructed on the site of a private mansion belonging to Lord Naito, a "daimyo"(feudal lord) of the Edo era. Completed in 1906 as an imperial garden, it was re-designated as a national garden after the second World War and opened to the public. With 58.3 ha(144 acres) in size and a circumference of 3.5 km, it blends three distinct styles, French Formal Garden, English Landscape Garden and Japanese Traditional Garden, and is considered to be one of the most important gardens from the Meiji era.
-Takashimaya Shinjuku: since its opening in 1996, Takashimaya has been the number-one draw in Shinjuku and is packed on weekends. This huge complex boasts 10 floors of clothing and restaurants (lower floors target the affluent elderly, while upper floors appeal to younger shoppers and families; petite and "queen-size" clothing are on the sixth floor). There's also Tokyu Hands with everything imaginable for the home hobbyist, and Kinokuniya bookstore with English-language books on the sixth floor....Read more
"Cosy, no nonsense accommodation in a great location"

We spent most of our time exploring the city and only came back to the apartment to sleep. For that purpose it was fantastic. The apartment was clean, has all the amenities we needed and was close to all the transport we needed. Plenty of great food to eat in the area and only 10 mins away from Shinjuku on the train. A good home-base for exploring inner Tokyo. Would recommend for the budget conscious traveller
