Things to Do in Roppongi

Things to Do in Roppongi
The most “infamous” area for its nightlife and bars in Tokyo, might be not a destination many tourists see worth visiting during the day, but come here for the nightlife scene. Far away from just that party image, the area has many shrines to see, museums and gardens to relax during daytime. Even many don’t even consider staying in the area, but the nightclubs and bars are mostly concentrated near Roppongi crossing. A few blocks from there, and the regular city sounds and silence will cover the night. Well connected to other areas by metro, and even walking distances to Shibuya and other districts. I stayed for a week in Roppongi during one of my trips. Here’s a list of things to do in the area, organized following a whole day.
