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.

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

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...
