There is an area in the narrow alley between Hanazono Shrine and Shinjuku promenade, where small counter snack / bars are gathered.
This area is called Golden Street.

This is a space used as a venue for public events, anniversaries, local festivals, music events and many more. Youtubers and tourists often take videos in this area. Right behind this area can be found VR ZONE SHINJUKU, which has become very popular these days.
