Where to start in Ni-chome? This is a good bet, right on Ni-chome's main drag, Naka-dori, and with an open facade that overflows with both gays and straights (but mostly gays) extending past the sidewalk to the street most nights. It’s a good place to gain bearings, check out the people parading past, and connect with the friendly crowd. A few drinks here, and you'll probably have a list of several places you want to hit next, but the bar’s website also gives excellent pointers.
Station: Shinjuku Sanchome (4 min.). On the street behind Bygs, to the right, with a red torii gate at its entrancePhone 03/6273-0740 Web site AiiRO Café
