101 things to do in Roppongi

Where to eat, shop and play in ‘High Touch Town’

Looking for night-time things to do in Roppongi? We've got those covered, too...

As far as some Tokyo residents are concerned, the only good thing to do in Roppongi to is get the first train out of the place. The capital's most famous entertainment district is also perhaps its most notorious: popular with American GIs during the post-war occupation, it went from sleazy to classy to sleazy again over the ensuing decades. Even the opening of ambitious, upmarket developments like Tokyo Midtown and Roppongi Hills – and the neighbourhood's bizarre re-christening as 'High Touch Town' in 1989 – haven't entirely removed its negative image. But don't let that put you off: you'd be missing out on a 'hood that's diverse, fun and also surprisingly classy. Read on for Time Out's selection of the best that Roppongi (and nearby Azabu-Juban) has to offer. It'll have you seeing the place in a whole new light – and it won't be a red one this time...
