Think of casinos and you should have Japan on the list of top three countries where gambling is popular. With the country full of casinos in literally every street, you should try your hand in some of the games. For beginners, it is highly recommended that you start with baccarat. It is one of the easiest games to learn with the highest betting odds.

Slots are another game you’ll be bumping into at every corner in a casino, so it doesn’t hurt to get some prior experience playing safe at online slots where they allow you to try out different titles before you commit. You can also try playing blackjack, poker, keno, or roulette as well. Just make sure you come prepared and that you don’t lose all your money; otherwise, you may not have enough to experience what Japan has left in store.

2) Enjoy at the Robot Restaurant

When you visit this place enjoying nightlife in Japan, remember one thing – what happens in the Robot Restaurant, stays in the Robot Restaurant. It is located in one of the biggest red light areas. Neon lights, robots, pretty girls, wine – this place is everything that you can ask for when it comes to partying extravagantly. Try to reserve your seats early because this restaurant fills out very quickly.

3) Take a walk down Shinjuku

When you are in Shinjuku, don’t forget to eat some of the local dishes in the nearby restaurants.

Also, try some local rice wine in the traditional Izakaya bars.
