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...

Popular meeting spot, you cant miss the gigantic screen, only problem is it feel like half the population of the world are also in on it!

Not sure why you'd actually go here. It's a big meeting point, and possibly a bit of a landmark. Packed full of restaurants. Lots of youthful energy. But so are many other places in other parts of town. Go to Shibuya or Shimo Kitazawa instead.

This place is used to be famous as a place to meet with friends in 1980s, (literally and as a studio for famous TV program) but now the area is so crowded and small, I do not think it a good choice to walk around...More
