Shinjuku's red-light district, Kabukicho, is worth visiting even only for the spectacle of neon signs that brighten its alleys when the sun sets. Every bar has its own quirk to it: Deathmatch in Hell is decorated with horror movies memorabilia for example, but others may come equipped with karaoke machines or all-you-can-drink sake.

The nightlife in Tokyo has something to offer everyone. Whether you are looking for a hedonistic party, superclub sounds, or chilled-out beats, it’s all here for the taking.
