  • I like the vibe especially at night time. You can also see here the famous Don Quijote where you can shop all your favorite Japanese products  more »
  • A very touristy place! Lots of lights, signs and PEOPLE everywhere. Food was expensive here. A very lively place and it feels like Shinjuku of Tokyo at times.  more »
