I didn’t know this was an attraction at first because we arrived at our hotel area in Shinjuku during the day. It was a very helpful place because you can see it easily at night as the TV screen is on and it was a...More

Studio? Frankly, I am not even sure there is a real studio there. For most people, Alta studio is a great meeting place just opposite JR Shinjuku station. A department store, with a recently added records/tape store that is definitely worth a look...

Not sure why you'd actually go here. It's a big meeting point, and possibly a bit of a landmark. Packed full of restaurants. Lots of youthful energy. But so are many other places in other parts of town. Go to Shibuya or Shimo Kitazawa instead.
