Roppongi Restaurant Guide

In the northern part of Tokyo's Minato ward is Roppongi. It is a shopping district that borders on southern Aoyama, Akasaka, Toranomon, Azabu-Juban, and Nishi-Azabu.After the war the Allied powers took control of Roppongi and the number of shops aimed at foreign customers increased.In the late 1950s the modern Asahi Television opened here.In the 1960s many foreign stars and domestic celebrities paid visits to the area, increasing its glamorous appeal.In the 1970s it surpassed Akasaka as spot for adult recreation and entertainment and during the Bubble years scores of discos and clubs were operated there. Since there are many embassies and a U.S. military facility, the area comes alive with young people and foreigners on weekend evenings.After Roppongi Hills opened, the atmosphere of the area changed, attracting different types of tourists.In autumn, the fallen leaves of the gingko trees create a yellow carpet along Roppongi-dori road. An urban display of autumn.Roppongi is also an art town with the Mori Art Museum, Suntory Museum of Art (in Tokyo Midtown) in neighboring Akasaka, and The National Art Center, Tokyo, forming the "Roppongi art triangle."
