High End Shopping in Roppongi Hills
In recent years the construction of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower and Tokyo Midtown has made Roppongi a high end shopping destination. Tokyo Midtown and Mori Tower combine art and fashion. Tokyo Midtown tauts stores like Pleats Please Issey Miyake, Boss Orange and museums including 21_21 Design Sight and The Suntory Museum of Art. While Mori Tower has The Mori Art Museum, and designer shops including Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Kate Spade. Both complexes have a rich assortment of traditional Japanese restaurants and global cuisine. Sukiyabashi Jiro Sushi is the Roppongi Hills sushi restaurant run by the son of Takashi Jiro, Tokyo's famous sushi chef featured in Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

A Glowing Tokyo Tower
From on the top of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, one can get a great view of the iconic Tokyo Tower in all its glory. Go to the tower right before sunset to get the most vibrant colors. There's a 360 degree view of the city.... From the other side of the tower, you can even watch the sun set from behind Mt. Fuji!
