Tokyo
Roppongi showing night scenes, a city and shopping

In the past this was one of Tokyo’s infamous nightlife areas, but its now an entertainment district known for tourist-friendly restaurants, bars, clubs and a gigantic spider. 

Roppongi is perhaps Tokyo’s most visitor-friendly entertainment district, easily navigated by English speakers. Whether you’re looking for a low-key British pub, a chic cocktail lounge or a high-energy dance club, you’re sure to find it among Roppongi’s hundreds of nightlife venues. In addition to bars, Roppongi is also becoming known for its art scene, with dozens of galleries dotting the neighborhood.

Since World War II, when it became a base for the U.S. Army and other Allied forces, Roppongi has been a hotspot for international visitors. Over the years, the neighborhood has continued to attract enterprises that cater to Western clientele. Today find numerous embassies in this area, along with a large expat population.

In an effort to overcome its sometimes risqué reputation, Roppongi is gradually establishing itself as a center of art and culture. Visit the area in April for the all-night celebration, Roppongi Art Night. Across the city, view music, video and performance art. Find contemporary art installations on city streets and in gallery venues.

Head to the top of the Mori Tower and enjoy the panoramic vista from its outdoor Sky Deck. For a separate fee, visit the tower’s Mori Art Museum, which houses a rotating collection of contemporary art. The ticket also provides admission to the Tokyo City View observation deck on the 52nd floor. Check out the shops and restaurants in Tokyo Midtown, one of the many facilities in this neighborhood dubbed as a “city within a city” due to its mix of residential and commercial space.

Stop for a meal at one of Roppongi’s countless restaurants in one of the most cosmopolitan dining areas in the city. You’ll find cuisine ranging from Italian to Chinese, along with familiar American chains like Starbucks and McDonald’s.

Reach Roppongi by subway; however, keep in mind that trains cease operating around midnight, so put aside some money for a taxi if you plan on staying out late.
