Last weekend we went out for a Turkish meal in Shinjuku, which is one of the 23 wards (districts) of Tokyo. Shinjuku is exactly what I imagined Tokyo to be like, before ever visiting Japan. It is crazy busy with bright neon lights and lots of noise. It is a great place to hang out on the weekends and people watch. It is also home to the famous Robot Restaurant. Shinjuku station is the world's busiest train station with 36 platforms, and apparently over 200 different exits. No wonder it took us over half an hour to find our friend, Mike, who we met there.

Trying to find a specific place in Japan is very difficult for us as we cannot read any of the signs and Google maps does not work in Japan. The Japanese address system doesn't seem to be compatible with Google maps. This means that we have to try and remember places that we may want to go back to by landmarks and key buildings. We were planning to go to a specific Turkish restaurant that we had been to before. However, after walking around for 20 minutes in the area where it is but still failing to find it, we gave up and went to a different Turkish restaurant. As you will see from the video, the portion sizes are on the small size, and we've noticed this to be the case at a few other restaurants but nevertheless the food was delicious.
I hope you enjoyed this night out with us :o)
