Shinjuku is where foreign tourists visit the most on their trip to Japan. The Metropolitan Government Building Observatories gives a bird’s-eye view of the city of Tokyo free of charge. Electronic stores provide a fine lineup of convenient products. There are also unique places like cat cafes and 100-yen shops. Foreigners shared many places they like about the town through the interview. They also enjoy new encounters at Golden Gai where the good old atmosphere still remains. Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden rich in nature yet located near tower buildings is another appealing spot for them. Foreigners truly enjoy the colorful elements that the city has to offer.
