Meeting someone in Shinjuku
The most popular meeting spot in Shinjuku tends to be in front of the Studio Alta building. The building is close to the station and is convenient to shopping and nightlife on the east side of the station. But if you are either coming from the west side, or meeting someone staying at any of the major hotels on the west side, a very convenient spot is in front of the Koban (police box) at the west exit of JR station. The koban is at the basement (B1) level, right in front of the rotary, where taxis line up for station guests. This location is easy to find and, fortunately, is where anyone lost and that side of the station is likely to end up.
