This is worth a visit if you are the area. Lots of energy and activity. Expect to be hassled as a foreigner, but take it as part of the charm and it won't get to you.

Compare Roppongi to any other place in the world that offers the same activities and lifestyle, Roppongi comes up tops all day. Because its very safe and you will find no bad attitude. Now, who beats that?!

I love Roppongi, If your smart enough to not get hustled then you can relax and enjoy Roppongi. All nightlife area around the world will always have a bit of a dark side. But if your just make sure to stay away from those things, then Roppongi is a really fun to be. There are a lot of bars to... More

For shopping and upscale dining I recommend both Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown. If you want to see some of the remaining older parts of the area with smaller bars and shops, walk down the hill along the highway towards Nishiazabu. Several new bars and restaurants are located here facing the highway. If you are more adventurous, walk down some... More

I tend to refrain from negative reviews, but this one soured my tastes so badly I can't help it. Before going here, ask yourself, sincerely, why did you go to Japan? Culture? Excitement? Meeting friendly and interesting new people? Trying new things? You'll find none of that here. This place is a sadder and colder version of your local bar... More

The trip was short and sweet. But, constant harassment by Nigerians on the street corners can turn a beautiful night to a depressing trip. Overall, Tokyo is a beautiful city.

Went to have a few drinks but I have no idea how this area got such a reputation for being a party seen . Hardly any bars (that you'd want to go in) and just a bit rubbish. Golden Gai a much better bet for a good night out.

Pretty ordinary scene full of Nigerian hustlers and pimps hassling you to get into their clubs where there are stories of organised drink spiking and scamming. Expensive too. Was expecting more to be honest, given all the raving about the place.

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.
