Default Shinjuku map

I have just spent considerable time, without success, (on a very wet
afternoon) trying to find a map of the Shinjuku district of Tokyo that
shows stret names in English.
If anyone can point me to a web site that shows this I would be grateful.
Thanks
Spencer

I'd be very surprised if such a map exists. Japanese street names rarely
appear in English.
However, the following map shows most of the features of interest (in
English) in Shinjuku.

Also, if you are staying in Shinjuku and using Shinjuku station as a
transportation hub, the following will be of use to you:-

I had the impression that a lot of the smaller streets do not even
have names in Japanese.

The best Shinjuku map I have came from the concierge's desk at my
hotel in Shinjuku You might also find it at one of the tourist
information offices in Tokyo (there is supposed to be one inside the
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in west Shinjuku, but I was not
able to find it when I was there).
