Tokyo neighborhoods Roppongi

This district of Tokyo is known as the heart of contemporary art. This is a justified definition because many museums and art galleries are located here. Tokyo National Art Center, Mori Art Museum and Suntory Art Museum, called the Roppongi art triangle, are some of the well knowns. Additionally, the 21 21 Design Sight, which focuses on architecture and design as you see in the photo, is another museum definitely worth visiting with its architecture and design-focused exhibitions and its magnificent building, designed by the famous architect Tadao Ando. Another important place is the Nezu Museum, with its collection of Japanese and East Asian art.

Roppongi district is touristically interesting and lively with its entertainment venues and contemporary art museums. It is also worth seeing with its shopping malls and dining options. The food court located in Tokyo Midtown can offer you many options to suit both your budget and your palate. One of the best things about Tokyo is that this highly developed, high-standard of living place offers affordable and delicious alternatives for solo travelers. You don't have to do 'fine dining' and you can find delicious and affordable places to eat and drink both in food courts and street buffets. Don't miss the Suntory Art Museum, located on the third floor of Tokyo Midtown, to see examples of traditional Japanese art. Another complex of malls and restaurants is the Roppongi Hills. It is where the Mori Art Museum is located, do not miss it, and note that it also has an observation deck.
