These few little alleyways just a few steps from the Shinjuku Station west exit transports you to an amazing experience of delicious grilled meats and things on sticks, hungry Japanese salarymen, and cold beer. A unique dining experience that shouldn't be missed. There are a few dozen restaurants, with just a handful of seats each. Pick a busy one, filled with locals and find a seat if you can. Don't worry about English menus, you can just point to the skewers that look good.
