If you prefer foreigner orieted entertainment and higher prices you are right in Roppongi. Of course, there are still some hidden typical Japanese restaurants and Izakayas but they are becoming less and less. repleced by Doner places, Italian pizzerias, shot bars and Pubs or any kind of Entertainment are the main focus of Roppongi in the evening. During daytime you... More

There are lots of bars here but I eschew those. If you are a party person, always go clubbing with a friend or friends, there are reports of people alone being drugged, their credit cards stolen, and they are presented with a huge bar bill when they wake up. Rather Roppongi to me means all about chic shopping, some excellent... More

There are various restraints and shops. But I think prices are higher than other town. But this town will entertain you. My recommend is the night Tokyo tower seen from this town is beautiful.

This is an area of Tokyo which seems very hyped because of the famous crossing with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. Most interesting are the buildings with the large LED screens lit up at night, if you've not seen this before or want to see this as part of your Tokyo experience. However, it didn't seem to be an...

Shibuya may be more famous because of the Pedestrian Scramble but Roppongi is better i think. Lots of bars/clubs and some shopping. Some people on the streets offer you to go to a certain bar

This a very cute little town that is close to everything. The subways are very convenient and it is easy to get to everywhere from here. This town has a lot to offer from small restaurants to very high end restaurants. Plus a very cute pet store with lots of puppies. I can spend hours at the puppy store. :-)

Roppongi Crossing is full of bars, clubs but also numerous good restaurants. Yes it is a bit more "touristy" than other parts of Tokyo but if this is your first visit to Tokyo it is not a bad place to start. Regardless of the time day or night there are lots of people around & it was for us a... More

I kinda hate Roppongi. It doesn't really feel Japanese. Lots of foreigners and clubbers. If you're a foreigner who enjoys the nightlife in Japan, then you'll absolutely love this place. If not, then don't go here at night, or at least, don't visit that shiny street. It's full of hustlers. They try so hard which is so annoying. It's like... More
