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.

I couldn't say nothing but Perfect! The best night I ever had while I was in Tokyo is when I visited this part of the city. So many foreign people, I met so many new friends from around the world, and you'll see the Tokyo Tower exactly in front of you from there.

Roppongi should not be missed when touring Tokyo. The area contains are many good restaurants, shopping areas, night life, and some interesting sights. This place is part of Tokyo that you should not miss.

If you are into the bar scene, well you come to the right place. Bars and dance clubs surround this part of Tokyo. Also some very good places to eat as well. Roppongi is known as Party Town. You have Tokyo Metro and Toie Subway lines to get you here.

Quite confusing visiting here as group of tourists. Shopping was straight forward, however the nightlife scene was hard to find as you needed to know exactly where bars/clubs were. A lot of Nigerians harassing you on streets asking you to visit their "clubs". DON'T. As these are usually strip clubs in seedy alleys. 3 out of our party of 4... More

Bars, clubs, cafes, restaurants, shops. Hearty night life that sometimes comes with a price. Foreigners should be especially careful as drinks are spiked at times (not in a good way). Women should be especially careful. Not a place I would put on the map as a must-see.

My friend and I went to Roppongi one night, having heard that it was one of the better nightlife spots in Tokyo. Perhaps it has past its prime, there are hardly any people in the bars and clubs at the area, and even if you do find one semi-filled one, they tend to be mostly expats. I was with a... More

Generally I am a kind of person who is always up for a good nightlife experience. But somehow, in roppongi, after hearing so much, the experience turned out be just average. Perhaps, I have been to few good places already, I believe. I don't know how to put my experience as, anyways I still try. The place has all the... More
