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...
