Shin-Okubo is a railway station located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. Opened on November 15, 1914, it is close to the large local Korea Town. Shin-Ōkubo station has only one exit.
Less than a kilometer north of the sprawling Shinjuku station, Shin- Ōkubo Station is located approximately 5 minutes walk from Shinjuku's famous Kabukichō district. It is also about a 3-minute walk from Ōkubo station on the Chūō-Sōbu Line.
On 26 January 2001, a 47-year-old photographer from Yokohama and a 26- year-old Korean student died at the station when they were hit by a Yamanote Line train while trying to save a drunken Japanese man who had fallen off the platform onto the tracks and also killed in the accident. In 2007, Anata wo Wasurenai, a film featured the Korean victim, was created. (Wikipedia)
