Just north of the MyLord building near Shinjuku Station is a narrow hidden little shopping street called Mosaic Street. Sandwiched in between MyLord + the Keio Dept. Store, the street contains a variety of shops, restaurants, stores and other attractions.
To get to it, exit the MyLord Bldg. to the north on the 3rd floor, or else head up the stairs/ramp right next to the Keio Dept. store on the northwest side of the station (near the bus pickup area). (The exit is actually called the West Gate).
The street is relatively short and an easy walk so it’s a quick diversion while in Shinjuku.
While you’re in the area, definitely hit the Depachika (food basement) in Keio as it’s out of sight.
The Mosaic St. entrance is just to the left of the Keio Dept. Store on the northwest side of the station. The entrance is just on the left in this photo.
