    Took a little walk before dinner at Union Square. Many high-end stores and good supermarket in the basement. Also like to speciality store that sell sauce and hot pot broth base in B1. Nice place to walk around and have a meal. But not cheap at all!

    Impressive temporary exhibition ending 3/31.1300 yen. The museum was crowded on a Monday afternoon. Kyosai was an Edo/Meiji period painter regarded by many Japanese to be as or close to as important as Hokusai. His training was classic and he started at the young age of 10. Some of this exhibition's works were on loan from the British Museum. If crowded, you will need about 2 hours. Lines in Japan's museums can be slow and tight but keep moving.

    Went there during a short walk around Roppongi. There was an exhibition, but due to time constrain, only managed a quick visit to the shop. Although small, but the design is nice and situated in a lovely neighborhood.

    A quick walk from Roppongi crossing, so not a bad idea if you’re in the area and want to see something more traditional. Nogi shrine is on the grounds of the former residence of Count Nogi, who was a wartime general and later tutor to the young Showa emperor. He’s better known for his (romanticized?) samurai-style suicide on the day of the funeral of the Meiji emperor. He slit his stomach to die along with his master. His wife followed suit and killed herself immediately after. The building where this happened is still there (you can see the room from outside the windows) plus a stone monument where the items bloodied in the ordeal are buried (yeah, really). From a western mind it seems pretty weird, but someone obviously thought his actions were worthy of recognition, and built the shrine in his honor (kind of like being made a saint, I think).

    Unfortunately we saw a dreadful show here but the venue itself is excellent with great sightlines from every seat and decent sound quality.
    Be warned, after paying fairly hefty prices for a seat you are then exposed to a food and drink menu that is pretty expensive.

    If you visit Roppongi or midtown, Hinokicho Park is a nice way to have a quiet break. It is a nice great park with a few games for kids leaving near by but also a nice pound with a shelter for meditation/break.

    Very casual atmosphere BUT stunning photographs.

    Truly enjoyed my time walking through this gallery and even if art galleries are not of interest to you these photos of every aspect of life are fantastic.

    Highly recommend a visit

    Was rather intrigued by the red-brick building across the street on my way home. A charming mysterious world beyond, I thought.

    Did not realize I was pulled back in time. I was looking at General Nogi Residence.
    Seriously, I was not prepared for this. The living room, the dining room where they took a picture after breakfast before they took their own lives. And the bedroom where they committed suicide.
    It was an emotional visit! Intriguing, nevertheless.

    Business travelers in the adjacent ANA Intercontinental Hotel will enjoy the restaurant options next door. Starbucks, Dean & Deluca, a grocery store, and pharmacy are all inside. Several Japanese restaurant options can also be found with nice staff and plenty of seating. Great food too!

    This theatre is very accessible from Akasaka Station on the Tokyo Metro, exit 3. It seats about 1,300 people and puts on a great variety of shows. Getting tickets on line is fairly easy if comfortable with reading Japanese otherwise it might be better to get your hotel or Japanese friend or guide to help book tickets. There is a small box office next to the entrance from which tickets can also be purchased. As this theatre is mainly popular with Japanese audiences it does not cater very much for solely English speakers. Perhaps a visit accompanied by a Japanese speaker would be good

    TBS is one of the major TV station in Japan, Channel 6 in Tokyo area, and is located here in Akasaka. They created a shopping and dining complex called Akasaka Sacas several years ago. Not so much to shop but quite good area for dining. They have good restaurants serve all different kind of food, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Belgium beer, Chinese, Oyster bar, and many different Japanese foods, sushi, sukiyaki, shabushabu, etc.

    I have been following Toraya for many years and I think it is not only one of the greatest brands, but also has a truly amazing story. This building just re-opened and I highly recommend in going.

    Passed this cafe by chance one evening and came back the next day. Good coffee, but the real attraction is the interesting range of memorabilia from the immediate post WW2 period. Spend time in the cafe looking at the pictures and reading the books. I particularly liked the journal from a French man who had lived in the city before the war and came back afterwards to sketch the changes.

    I have visited the school several times and bought friends along to try their hand at ikebana. Everyone of them said it was a wonderful experience and will certainly visit again when in Tokyo. I personally enjoy visiting the school because the staff are so inspiring that make you feel you like a true artist straight away.
    The foyer designed by Isamu Noguchi is definitely worth a visit, which is a great introduction to a world of Sogetsu ikebana. Not forgetting those who like to shop, one can visit the 4th floor where there is a great selection of equipment and books.
