After finishing business at Shinjuku 2-chome, I took a peek at "Tokyu Kabukicho Tower".

This Tuesday (April 18th), Shinjuku 2-chome popcorn was able to finish its business early, so after having a meal with Hina Mama and Kyushu ramen in Shinjuku Kabukicho, we went to the much-talked-about Tokyu Kabuki. I took a peek at Kikicho Tower.

Tokyu Kabukicho Tower is located in 1-chome, Kabukicho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo. It is a complex high-rise building with no offices or residences, but mainly entertainment and recreational facilities such as hotels, movie theaters, and theaters. 48 floors above ground and 5 floors below ground, approximately 225m high. The building was designed by Kume Sekkei and Tokyu Design Consultant JV, and constructed by Shimizu Corporation and Tokyu Construction JV.
The opening is scheduled for April 14, 2023, and the hotel is scheduled to open on May 19.

Appearance and entrance of Tokyu Kabukicho Tower

This photo was taken at 3:48 in the morning. The large screen (purple area) installed in front of the building does not seem to be broadcast during the late-night hours. For the time being, I will enter from the entrance on the second floor that can be entered even at midnight.

Tour of Tokyu Kabukicho Tower 2nd floor store

When you enter from the entrance on the 2nd floor, you will be greeted by the shops in Kabukicho Yokocho.
I've seen this flashy storefront somewhere before...
As I found out later, this shop is apparently located at the east exit of Shinjuku Station. Shinjuku East Exit Yokocho It seems to be the same series.

Shinjuku Higashiguchi Yokocho is the same, but somehow it looks like the store was designed by the manager of a cabaret club in Kabukicho.

This is a quote from the internet, but it seems that the shopping street on the second floor is made with the following concept.

A total of 10 food festivals that combine food, music and video with the theme of "festival". From Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu and Okinawa in the south, to the neighboring country of South Korea, “soul food” is gathered here. Various performances and his events will be held every night, aiming to become a new exchange base for Kabukicho.

Now, one last thing to worry about...

The toilet on the 2nd floor is locked with an electronic lock, and it seems that only store users can use it, but it is genderless and can be used by both men and women.
If so, there may be some resistance. At the very least, I think it would have been better to have separate entrances, such as men-only, women-only, and unisex.
