Shinjuku is only 20 mins from Tokyo station. There are many office buildings out there but there are also many Izakaya restaurants open until morning. Today, I’m going to introduce the best Izakaya restaurants in Shinjuku area.

If you want an easy access, this restaurant is located right in front of the station. I recommend their Nagoya Kochin Sukiyaki Course.

You can enjoy great sukiyaki with an affordable price. They have separated private rooms so it’ll be good for a small party as well.
