A hundred years ago, Shinjuku used to be a village on the outskirts of Tokyo. Since then, the ward has reached the importance of Chiyoda as one of the two main economic centers of Tokyo. Shinjuku boasts the highest concentration of skyscrapers in Japan, and perhaps for this reason has been associated in the post-WWII era as the symbol of Japan's modernism.
 
Shinjuku ward. Population as of 2000: 287 thousand. Area: 18.2 square kilometers.
