The root of Golden Town is the black markets that appeared near Shinjuku during the chaos of World War II. Cultural figures such as journalists and novelists used to gather here every night and engage in passionate discussions. Most of the small wooden tenement house-style buildings have only counter seating. Today the number of shops run by young owners is increasing, and Shinjuku Hanazono Golden Town has become a new famous spot in Shinjuku that has a great deal of history.
