During my second trip to Japan back in 2008, I stayed in Nishi-shinjuku, which served as the hub for the Tokyo portion of my trip. Upon arrival, I was instantly blown away by the pristine, futuristic cityscape and the overwhelming amount of delicious, affordable food to be found in this city-within-a-city, just to the west of Shinjuku Station.
