Getting There & Away
- Train The JR Yamanote loop line hits major hubs Shinjuku and Ikebukuro (and stops at Shin-Ōkubo, Takadanobaba and Mejiro in between).
- Subway Shinjuku-sanchōme is a useful subway stop, just east of Shinjuku Station (and near all the nightlife). It's serviced by the convenient east–west Marunouchi (red) line, which also stops at Nishi-Shinjuku (just west of Shinjuku Station) and Shinjuku-gyoenmae.
- Taxi The only place you can (officially) get picked up or dropped off around Shinjuku Station is at the taxi stand on the 3rd floor of the Shinjuku Bus Terminal.
