The stories are all true. Because my friends and I read the reviews here we knew exactly what to expect. It's all true, very true. We didn't expect to encounter these guys so quickly. Within half a block of the train station we were already getting harassed. Don't get lured in by the Nigerians and you'll be fine. We found... More

Go to Roppongi when in Tokyo. Its a great area and the Tokyo tower is there for great views. Night time is the best as you can eat tappas and drink wine from the observation deck. very civilised.

Unfortunately this dazzling area is ruined al night by droves of African and local pimps trying to get you to enter their club and buy a drink. You will end up paying well over $100. They will literally stop you and try to shake hands, so a word to the wise, do not make eye contact and do not risk... More

**Please keep in mind, There was a group of 8 of us, All male, Ranging from 18 years to 26 years*** So we had been told that Roppongi was the "place to go" to go out and Party. Being that we had spent a week up North in the snow and wanted to let loose a bit in the concrete... More

Roppongi was my favourite place to go out in Tokyo. People on the street will not try too hard to get you in the bars and clubs, like they do in shinjuku. Also the prices are better than in other places and you'll find good bars and clubs!

It is an area (one big avenue and some surroundig streets) for fun, with restaurants, pubs, karaoke houses... The international chains like Hard Rock are here. It is funny, full of people by night and you can get good choices for dinner... A difficult comparison but I a japonese experience similar to Time Square by night in NY...

Roppongi is where expatriates live in Tokyo. If you've been to Phuket Island in Thailand, you know how ex-pat areas are in asia. It's a place where you can find a greater selection of foods from europe, India, middle east, and elsewhere. It's where you'll find a lot of bars, unfortunately it's also an area of higher crime (relative to... More

Roppongi is a great place for a night out. If you looking to meet new people and have a great time at many small bars and clubs. Roppongi is the place to be. Dont get pulled in to any of the "strip clubs" and you will be fine. After midnight is when Roppongi gets a little grimey, but honestly no... More

A really lively area with a lot to offer. So much so - most of the free guide pamphlets include a separate Roppongi map with things to do. There is a wide range of shopping, restaurants and cultural activities to enjoy. And yes we did see the Nigerian/Somalia gentlemen vying for your business. Be smart - ignore them - and... More
