When we had wanted to distract ourselves from the shrines, museums, parks ,different palaces, that there is a plenty in Tokyo, we usually went to Roppongi district in Minato. And this thing we did in evening hours, since Roppongi is renowned by its night life. The name means " the six trees". Beside the numerous night clubs, restaurants, it is... More

Roppongi is not worth the visit unless you want western/American culture which gives me the serious yawn factor if I'm visiting a foreign country like Japan. Full of your typical Hard Rock Cafe type places. Nothing like the cultural and unique interesting feel that Shinjuko and Shibuya give. We thought we would just make the visit to cross it off...

The fun is unlimited. The place never sleeps. The food is unlimited. The drinks never end. The dance continues. The night clubs invite you. Roppongi area in Tokyo is where you got to be after a long day's work and after being busy in your daily official meetings etc. A place to have fun, to explore local culture and also... More

Roppongi is where you can find company that you would not write home to mom about. The stop is H04 on gray line. Trains stop at 11pm so be prepared to take a taxi back. They have a shot bar that sells shots for 100 yen, also many clubs like Exotic City outrageous prices 3000 yen to enter, includes drinks... More

Touristy sure, but if you're a first-time visitor to Tokyo this may be the best place to make you feel more at home. Plenty of English-friendly things to do, coffee shop, the mall. Definitely not a bad place to make your "base camp" in Tokyo, but if you want the real experience then you're going to have to branch outward.

The famous night district of Tokyo, its full of bars and restaurants open till very late at night. The area its nice and not that busy but in my opinion there is an overhyped sensation related to this place that for the common tourist its better to avoid. I would only go for a while only for a quick meal... More

I wouldn`t recommend Roppongi for the reason that it is way over hyped and there are much better places in Tokyo.I would also add,it can be one of the few places in Tokyo that can be unsafe,so be careful.

Was walking through Roppongi under a scorching Monday morning/afternoon sun and didn't feel endeared to it. I've walked through some other neighbourhoods (shouldn't mention them in order to preserve peace and order) in Tokyo and have been charmed by them but not this. Maybe I'll try walking at night in my next trip to discover a new dimension.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
