Shin-Okubo Station

Shin-Okubo Station served as the starting point for all of our train rides while we were staying in Shinjuku. This station was on the Yamanote Line so all we had to do was pick up a Suica card and reload it as necessary to cover the fare. Like I mentioned, this station was about a 10 minutewalk from our AirBnB.

There were plenty of little shops and grocery stores on the way to and from here, so picking up some groceries, food, or beer was simple and we didn't have to go out of our way. The sidewalks were always super busy and pulling the roller bag was something problematic as people just don't watch where they were walking or the sidewalks were uneven.
