Explore a food court that looks like a yokocho alley, Kabuki Hall


The tower features "Shinjuku Kabuki Hall - Kabuki Yokocho," a large hall that looks like a yokocho. In Japan, yokocho are small alleys crammed with tiny restaurants, bars, and Japanese pubs called izakaya. They're popular places to go drinking after work and eat cheap and delicious food.

Kabuki Hall recreates the feeling of a yokocho, featuring food stall-like restaurants next to each other with overlapping tables. Kabuki Hall has ten restaurants that serve popular dishes. Each stall features food from a region of Japan, such as Hokkaido or Shikoku, and one stall offers Korean food.

Kabuki Hall also hosts performances and events, guaranteeing a lively meal.

Conquer the dungeon of Sword Art Online


One floor of the Tokyu Kabukicho Tower is devoted to an interactive experience called Sword Art Online: Anomaly Quest. It's based on Sword Art Online, the popular franchise that includes novels, manga, anime, and video games. In the world of Sword Art Online, protagonists Kirito and Asuna take part in a virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game. While connected to high-tech virtual reality headsets, they explore expansive online worlds, fall in love, and fight their way through dungeons.

Sword Art Online: Anomaly Quest, which features characters from the franchise, is structured like an escape room. Participants are locked in a dungeon and must escape traps and solve puzzles in order to win. They take on the role of virtual reality gamers and try to beat Kirito and Asuna.

Have a blast at a gaming arcade, Namco Tokyo



Head to Namco Tokyo, a large arcade and amusement complex inside the tower that is covered in neon-style lights. It includes arcade games featuring taiko drumming, driving, and claw machines. Namco Tokyo is filled with claw machines of all sizes, where players maneuver claws to try to grab prizes. The arcade includes the largest claw machine in Shinjuku. Prizes include stuffed animals and figures.

Aside from the arcade games, Namco Tokyo includes an area called the Music and Play Lounge where you can buy food and drinks. An AI DJ plays music in the lounge, which also features performances. You can enjoy a meal or some ice cream in between games.

Immerse in the world of movies at 109 Cinemas Premium Shinjuku


On Tokyu Kabukicho Tower's ninth and tenth floors, you'll find 109 Cinemas Premium Shinjuku, a new movie theater. The theater boasts eight screens and 752 total seats. Its seats can be reclined for maximum comfort while viewing. The background music and sound systems at the theater were supervised by famous Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.

The movie theater offers a variety of domestic and international movies with Japanese audio or subtitles. Aside from movie screenings, the theater also puts on livestreams of music performances and more. Screen 6 is a ScreenX, a three- screen experience that wraps around the front and side walls of the theater.

Some tickets include an unlimited concession stand benefit. You'll be able to fill up on unlimited soft drinks and popcorn.

Watch a live stage show at Theater Milano-Za


You can also head to the tower's Theater Milano-Za for live performances. This 900-seat theater hosts events such as plays, musicals, concerts, and film screenings. It also has a bar and lounge where patrons can drink and relax before and after performances.

The theater has seats on three floors, with a large first-floor orchestra section and two upper mezzanine floors that wrap around the walls. Although the theater can hold a large audience, the distance from the stage to the back row of the first-floor section is only 19 meters. This keeps audience members and performers relatively close together and gives performances an intimate feel.

Admire the view of Shinjuku at the bar & restaurant, Jam17 Dining & Bar


Jam17 Dining & Bar is located on the 17th floor of the Tokyu Kabukicho Tower. It's a restaurant and bar operated by one of the hotels that take up the tower's upper floors. Jam17 is open from lunch to dinner and offers three menus during different times of day: lunch, teatime, and dinner. The lunch and dinner menus offer multiple courses of Japanese-style Western cuisine. The teatime menu offers lighter meals such as salads and sandwiches. Regardless of the time of day, you can enjoy high-quality meals and farm-fresh vegetables.

The name Jam17 comes from the concept of the restaurant and bar: a place where people can freely join in the vibrancy and diversity of Kabukicho, like a musical jam session.
