While this entertainment district in Shinjuku once had a questionable reputation, it's famous for hidden spots and rare gems that can't be found anywhere else in Tokyo. Kabukicho is full of restaurants, bars and karaoke joints, along with movie theatres and live music venues. For the perfect photo op, don't forget to stop by the flashy main entrance – the brightly lit street sign somehow stands out in the sea of neon surrounding it.
Tokyo's got some pretty incredible views, but you'll really want to take it in during the evening when the city's all lit up with twinkling lights in a multitude of colours. In spring, the city takes things to a whole new level with sparkling cherry blossom illuminations. Even when the sakura aren't in season, you'll find festive light-ups throughout autumn and winter, too. Love a good view? Here's where you can take in the best night sights around the capital.
