What you should know about Roppongi

Roppongi is a lively district of multiple personalities, from its one-time gangster-run nightclub scene to its luxury shopping; from its vibrant expat community to its growing reputation as Tokyo's fine art hub. Named after a legendary grove of six trees, it was formerly a barracks for the Imperial Guard, and then became a notorious red-light area before the Americans settled here after the War. That helped to turn it into one of Tokyo's most diverse neighborhoods, and also one of its most exciting.

Hotels in Roppongi

As its reputation has climbed, so too has the quality of its accommodation, and today hotels in Roppongi are among the city's most luxurious. The Ritz Carlton Tokyo sits at the pinnacle—literally. This 5-star hotel ranges over the top floors of the 53-story Midtown tower, the tallest building in Tokyo. Praised for its stunning views and faultless service, it offers guests classy spa facilities and premium dining. Another choice for a luxury hotel in Roppongi is the Intercontinental ANA Tokyo, with its Michelin-starred dining and garden pool. Still classy, but somewhat more affordable, is the designer Roppongi Hotel S, noted for its excellent breakfast and helpful staff.

Things to see in Roppongi

For many coming to Roppongi the sights really start when night falls, in the clubs and bars along Gaien-Higashi-dori. Famed for its multiculturalism, you'll find everything here from Beatles tribute bars and Aussie pubs to J-Pop dance clubs. But there's plenty to see during the daylight hours too—especially since the opening of Roppongi's two new mega-developments, with their upscale shopping malls, art galleries and soaring towers. The Mori Tower boasts the Mori Art Museum, dedicated to contemporary artists and one of three galleries making up Roppongi's Triangle of Art. A few hundred meters away is Tokyo Midtown, with its even higher tower and a complex of high-end boutiques and top-rated restaurants. It also has its own art museum, the Suntory Museum of Art, which focuses on stylish Japanese ceramics, lacquerware, and glassware. More contemporary art is on exhibit at the sinuously shaped National Art Center Tokyo, halfway between Roppongi's two towers.

Good for arts lovers and party people

Roppongi is a neighborhood that knows how to entertain its visitors, whether it's with culture or good times. Arts lovers will adore its 3 museums, while the party crowd will enjoy choosing from among its plethora of clubs. It's also a neighborhood that has long been welcoming to foreigners, making it one of the most open and accessible of Tokyo's districts. You're more likely to come across English here, whether written on signs or spoken, than in the rest of the capital. It's also close to Tokyo's central attractions. That makes accommodation in Roppongi a great idea for first-time visitors.

How to get to Roppongi

There are several routes to get you here from Narita International Airport, but the simplest and quickest way to travel to Roppongi is on the Narita Skyaccess. Catch this from Terminal 2 and you will be at Roppongi Station in 1 hour and 20 minutes, after a quick change at Diamon Station. You can also take the Narita Airport Limousine Bus to Tokyo Station, but the connections involve more changes and time. It’s easy to walk around Roppongi itself, but there's also a local bus service, the Toei Bus Line 101, running through the center of the district.
