This little dango (rice based Japanese sweets, ball-shaped and grilled) shop is 20 years old. Run by a local husband and wife team, they have been operating out of their house now for seven years. They have one item, dango, which are all made from specialty rice (currently, from Niigata prefecture).
11h – 18h, closed Monday
Tokyo Opera City Tower 4F, 3-20-2 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 163-1404 Japan
By facilitating a dialogue between science, technology, and artistic culture ICC hopes to become a centre for network and information exchange, connecting artists and scientists worldwide. We love ICC for the work they do at promoting otherwise little-known aspects or our lives.
Owner and barista, Shimoji-san, runs this cute and poky coffee stand, but the coffee is anything but cute. He is very serious about his coffee, and his bean roasting process is done right inside the shop. Expect lattes, drip coffee, and all the usual culprits (chai also available for non-caffeine drinkers).
11h – 17h (closed Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday)
NB：also closed form Sat 8/10 to Sun8/18 (talk to staff at the Bike Rentals +City Guide about what to do if you need to redeem in that time).

For 30 years, Toshin has been providing Nishi-Shinjuku locals with their fruit and vegetables. Originally in a different nearby location, they moved several years ago to attract more on-foot traffic. A great selection of cheap produce – “normal” fare as well as more unusual Japanese super seasonal items.
