Toyoko Inn, Shinjuku Kabukicho

If you are looking for a budget hotel in Kabukicho, Toyoko Inn is a very good choice.

​Like all budget hotels in Tokyo the rooms are very small but adequate. Offering free wi fi and a fairly basic breakfast & only a five minute walk to to Higashi-Shinjuku metro station.

About a 15 minute walk to Shinjuku station which just happens to be the busiest railway station in the world.

Many people will tell you to take care when you visit Kabukicho because it is considered to be one of Tokyo’s most dangerous districts, due to ​many of the business being run by the Yakuza. Personally I have never felt unsafe there, particularly when I compare it with many other big cities, Kabukicho to me is just a fantastic entertainment experience.

They call Kabukicho “The Sleepless Town”. It is part of Shinjuku and offers a choice of thousands of restaurants and clubs for your entertainment.
