Omotesando Window Shopping

A lovely window-shoppers paradise, this is a great area to stroll and watch the world go by (or buy).

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!

Archanattack

Tokyo just can’t catch a break—it’s been flattened, firebombed, attacked by Godzilla, and now it’s been invaded by a giant spider. A spider sculpture, that is—Maman, as the series of art installations by the late American artist Louis Bourgeois found in several other major cities overseas is known, has taken up permanent residence in the Roppongi Hills residential, office and shopping complex. The super-sized arachnid serves as a convenient meeting point for hooking up with friends and dates before heading out for a bite at legendary chef Joel Robuchon’s Michelin-starred Le Atelier located on the second floor or catching a flick at Toho Cinemas, also inside the complex.
