Japanese burger chain Mos Burger isn't quite like anything you've had back home. Building on the humble fast-food hamburger, Mos Burger makes for a pretty quick and tasty Japanese option while you're on the go, sightseeing in Tokyo or wandering through the streets of Kyoto. When your stomach starts to growl and the sun is shining overhead, it's the perfect time to duck into the classy burger joint, and grab something far from the mundane. Plus, the chain has a reputation for attention to detail and high quality. With one of their internal brand mottos being “good food for good health,” you'll feel ready to get going when you finish a Mos Burger, instead of weighed down. Piled high with fresh produce and never skimping on the special sauce, a trip to Mos Burger offers a fresh new spin on the classic! We recommend you stop in for a taste of Japanese burgers, alongside a taste of Japanese hospitality.

When a local Tokyoite says they're heading to Shinjuku for the day, you know that means they're going to shop till they drop! But a shopping trip in downtown Tokyo doesn't have to wear you out; some of Shinjuku's best shopping can be found right outside the train station's ticket gates. Head towards the southern end of "Shinjuku Eki" (新宿駅, Shinjuku Station) and you'll find some of our most highly recommended shopping destinations: Shinjuku Mylord (pronounced "me lord") and Flags. Between these two shopping centers, you'll find everything you need to shop your heart out. Don't get lost down Shinjuku's myriad alleys and avenues, Mylord and Flags have fashion options and music, vinyl records and k-pop, anime goods and lunch offerings including sushi, ramen, and even gourmet vegan meals.
