This is a rich/fancy part of Tokyo; lots of luxury brands have shops here and there's also a lot of restaurants. Tokyo Tower is located here as well; both it and the Mori Art Museum have observation platforms with great views of Tokyo.

It's like stepping into a different world. Doesn't feel like Japan. Full of scary people trying to get you into a bar. Seemingly popular among foreigners wanting to party with young Japanese. The streets are rather dirty and there are shady businesses everywhere. Don't take your children or grandmother there at evening/night time. Only interesting thing was Don Quijote, but... More

Yes it's true. There are quite a few great safe places to go. However there are quite a few which aren't. Basically I went into one. There were some 'black' really nice sexy woman who were offering around shots at a decent price. That's the last thing I remember. Woke up at my hotel with all my clothes on and... More

So. Roppongi is a great place (I've been living here for the past 4 months now) but...there are pros and cons: Pros: - international center; lots of shops etc. speak English and have English menus which makes day-to-day living a lot easier. - Roppongi has great rail/metro connections (Roppongi/ Roppongi-itchome; 10 mins from Shinjuku), which make it great for travelling...

Lots of great places to eat and things to do, mostly at night. This is not the family part of the city, but good for shopping and food/drink.

A good place for finding different variety of restaurants and having a night out. It has many different restaurants. This place was alive even on the first of Jan when everywhere else were closed.

Nice area with high quality commerce, restaurants and bars. Good malls but wrongly designed and badly managed. Nice garden. All around is expensive but deserves a visit.

Lots of foreigners here. That can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. Same for Shibuya. Ikebukuro feels more authentic Tokyo.
