Time was when dining out under Tokyo’s train tracks and expressways meant slumming it with dodgy yakitori and rotgut sake. These days the arches are gentrifying fast — just look at Sanagi Shinjuku.

Squeezed in under the Koshu Kaido overpass just a short stroll from JR Shinjuku Station’s South Exit, this bright, colorful food court (plus event and exhibition area) offers a pan-Asian food selection with outdoor seating — some of it on tatami — that’s in big demand now that the hot weather has set in.
