Let’s Visit Tokyo – Shinjuku Part II – Kabukichō

Let’s Visit Tokyo – Shinjuku Part II – Kabukichō

Being a notorious red light and hostess bar district, Kabukichō is one of the less appealing places in Tokyo. Dirty, with “Pron” material to grab at any corner of this street, Kabukichō is despite its reputation, a place that many tour operators in China are guiding tourists…

Like any business-oriented area, Kabukichō see its building rebuild and redesigned to grab more customers, but, interestingly there is still tiny area that hasn’t changed since 1951 it is where we are going today on let’s visit Tokyo, so like usual kick-off you choose, seat relax and enjoy show with us!

Fun Fact : According to officials in Tokyo there were in 2004 more than 1,000 yakuza members in Kabukichō, and 120 different enterprises under their control (From Wikipedia).

PS : Since we where not able to upload videos for the past 2 weeks due to personal reasons and weather, we are offering you today’s video in 1080/30p instead of the usual 720/30p, enjoy!

    thanks for the video!

    what kind of software do you use to encode it to Divx format?

  • http://chouzuru.blogspot.com/ Sara Mari

    Oh these photos are quite interesting. I like that it’s during the day, rather than the night when you usually see photos of Kabukicho, and the focus on refuse is neat too^^

    great video – my travel mates and me would pass through the kabukichō almost every day when we stayed in shinjuku and I really love it in the daytime as it has so much personality even though some will claim those to be imperfections.
    on the contrary, I didn’t like it at night at all with the signs for soaplands, shifty looking male staff, and similar would be far too much in your face :/

    The two times my friends bothered to take me around the area, it was unrelated to any of the local, ummm, entertainment. I’d never seen the back streets shown in your photos.

    The one time I stopped to glance at one of the boards pricing “services”, the man spoke “buying–come, looking–go away.” :-D

    Shinjuku has better things to see but none quite so interesting.

    Dear Sir,

    I have always enojoyed your “Let’s Visit Tokyo” videos.

    Unfortunately, this latest one just just so depressing
    that I actually considered killing myself after watching
    it. It’s a side of Japan that I just can’t bear to watch.

    If possible, please delete this video.

    Thank you very much.

    Sincerely

    Joey S.

      But this side of Japan really exists… Deleting this video is like hiding a “bad” part of Japan…

    • Sakaphoto

      Every society has bad points, even if the society chooses to hide them.

      Japan is no paradise and it never has been, although it feels pretty good on average.

      Talking about suicide is strong language and you shouldn’t do it because of something so trivial as a video. Your life is too precious to waste on a video.

    • Steve

      I don’t see what the problem is with this video that would cause you to contemplate suicide. Of course its not really depicting beautiful scenery or anything, but its not like its horrifying to look at. I found it to be quite interesting, reminded me of something I’d see at a film festival for short films category.

      More videos like this every now and then wouldn’t be so bad to see.

    I love your “Let’s Visit Tokyo” videos. I hope to return soon to Japan. Meanwhile I am happy with these little bits of Tokyo. Thanx.

    Greetings from Spain
