Roppongi

Similar to Ginza, Roppongi has high end shopping/eating. I personally call Roppongi the “Beverly Hills” of Japan. If you are looking for a more western vibe, this is a place to be in. You can also find more diverse food options here as well that are more difficult to find elsewhere in Tokyo.

What to do at Roppongi

Roppongi Hills/ Mori Garden/ Maman/ Mori Art Museum

Location: 6 Chome-11-1 Roppongi, Minato City, Tokyo 106-6108, Japan

Explore Roppongi Hills and it’s over 100 shops/restaurants inside the center. (You may get lost in the building haha). Outside of Roppongi Hills is the Mori Garden and Maman. It’s a nice outdoor stroll area to relax and take iconic photos. Next to Roppongi Hills is the Mori Art museum which is within Mori Tower and has pretty interesting contemporary art!


Tokyo Tower

Location: 4 Chome-2-8 Shibakoen, Minato City, Tokyo 105-0011, Japan

Visit Tokyo Tower not too far away! Depending on the season, there are different exhibitions, events, attrations, and illumination within the tower. I do recommend going to the tower at night since its a better view of Tokyo and the Tower.

Roppongi Kingyo

Location: Japan, 〒106-0032 Tokyo, Minato City, Roppongi, 3 Chome−14−17 大捷ビル

Explore Roppongi’s show-pub! Reserve tickets online and watch a show containing Kabuki actors/dancers to transsexual dancers. Food can be ordered to enjoy the show from bento boxes to dinner courses!

Dumbo

Location: Japan, 〒106-0045 Tokyo, Minato City, Azabujuban, 2 Chome−17−6

Try this Donuts place where matcha icing donuts are a thing! Loved this place more than Mr.Donuts, and the donuts are very fluffy but not overly sweet.


LUIDA’S BAR

Location: 5 Chome-16-3 Roppongi, Minato City, Tokyo 106-0032, Japan

If you like Dragon Quest, then this Izakaya is for you! Order faces of popular characters and enjoy a meal.


Information regarding clubs/bars in Roppongi:

I don’t recommend any clubs in Roppongi. There are better ones in other places. Unless you are Japanese, most clubs in Roppongi will pressure you hard to go into clubs and spend a lot of money on drinks. Some of the clubs are a little sketchy if you don’t know anyone who can speak Japanese for you. I knew places that would pressure underage foreigners to go into their club.

As for bars, many bars you go to will have a seating charge (pay to just sit in) for about 15 dollars and up. Then the beers and drinks are also expensive. So I recommend going to a bar in a small/least popular district or neighborhood.
