In addition to Keith's answer down below, I highly recommend to visit the observatory in the Tokyo City Hall Bldg. a.k.a. the Metropolitan Government Bldg. After enjoying the birds' eye view from there, you can walk down towards Shinjuku Station Southern Terrace where you can have coffee in the terrace of Starbuks looking down colorful trains constantly coming & going. From there, you will find a department store called Tokyu Hands. They offer any sorts of the coolest things in various categories.
Shinjuku is a great place for shopping and restaurants/bars, but my favourite place in Shinjuku is Shinjuku Gyoen. Admission is just 200yen and the park is huge, with a beautiful, peaceful Japanes garden a well as a rose garden and beautiful lily ponds. In November there is a big Kiku- Chrysanthemum display which is well worth a look. It's a great place to have a picnic after shopping and before heading out to check out the local nightlife.
