Onsen is a quintessential part of the Japanese culture, and no trip to Japan is complete without visiting one and experiencing them for yourself. There is just something so calming about soaking yourself in steaming hot water and letting your muscles relax after a long day of exploring. In fact, many locals retire to the onsens to wind down after a tiring day.

There are many onsens all around Japan, no matter which city you look at. There are, in fact, over 3,000 onsens all around the country.

Tokyo, in particular, is home to several good onsen. Here are the 6 Best Onsens in Tokyo That You Need To Visit.

The Japanese, however, take their Internet Cafés very seriously. They are often associated with Manga Kissa (or Manga Cafés). @Bagus Gran Cyber Café in Shinjuku, Tokyo, is one such place, and a single visit there has completely changed our opinions of Internet Cafés.

7 Food Places In Shinjuku (Tokyo) That Open Till Late

Shinjuku at night

Tokyo generally experiences early sunsets all year round. During the summer, daylight lasts until about 7pm in the evening. But during the colder months such as November and December, the country will already be blanketed in darkness once it hits 4pm. This definitely makes the days in Tokyo much shorter, especially when shops would close earlier too.

Step out of your hotel at 8pm, and you will probably have a hard time finding restaurants or stores that are still open. Shinjuku, however, never sleeps.

If you are one for a good late-night drink or if you just need a late night snack, here are 7 Food Places in Shinjuku (Tokyo) that open till late.
