  • Pacific Currents (Bars / Azabu-juban)
  • 2010/09/28
  • The food was tasty but the portions were extremely small. The service was good but the atmosphere seemed to lack energy (at least on the night that my husband and I visited).
  • Shin: Hiroo (Sushi / Hiroo)
  • 2010/10/06
  • A quaint, cozy restaurant with limited seating capacity. Impeccable service and delicious sashimi and sushi. It is a treat to watch the handsome chef and his apprentice at work while sitting at the counter. A delightful experience.
  • == CLOSED == Fifty Seven (Cocktail Lounges / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/18
  • It is a nice, casual restaurant which serves decent food. It is a place to go to when you want to go smart casual, very trendy. It is a nice place to go to for a girl's night out.
  • Sense Tea Corner at the Mandarin Oriental (Tea / Nihombashi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • My friend took me here for my birthday. The service is impeccable and the view is SPECTACULAR. The nicest view in Tokyo in my opinion. This tea room is more traditional than other tea rooms that we frequent in Tokyo. The seating can be somewhat uncomfortable for someone with long legs such as myself. However, the food is delicious. We ordered a traditional tiered serving platter. The waiter also asked us if we had any food preferences which was nice as well.
  • The Ritz Carlton (Hotels / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • My Japanese teacher and I frequent the Ritz Carlton for tea and lunch. The service has always been impeccable and we are always seated immediately. It has a nice view of Tokyo.
    You are able to order finger-food served on a traditional tiered platter or you are able to order a hamburger, sandwich, soup, and/or salad as well. It is more expensive than The Peninsula tea room but perhaps you are paying for the view?
  • The Peninsula Tokyo (Hotels / Ginza)
  • 2010/10/19
  • My Japanese teacher and I frequent The Peninsula for tea and lunch. The prices are reasonable and the service is satisfactory (I did have to complain one time when we were not seated immediately-when there were many tables available). The food is delicious as well. You are able to order finger food served on a traditional tiered serving platter or you are able to order soup, salad, and/or sandwiches.
  • Jenifer Hair & Beauty International (Hair Salons / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I went to this salon on a few occasions for hair color, cut, and an eye brow wax. My stylist, who lived in NYC, was very good at coloring hair and she did a nice job on my eyebrows. However, I did not like how she cut and styled my hair. It looked 'choppy.' Finally, I requested that reception address me in the same manner that they address their Japanese clientele (RE: using the surname) but they did not.
  • David's Deli (Bakery / Azabu-juban)
  • 2010/10/19
  • Good food, satisfactory service, and a comfortable atmosphere. They have a huge TV screen behind the bar as well which was playing a movie when we visited. Not a bad place to visit for lunch or a casual dinner.
  • Boudoir (Nail salons / Omotesando, Aoyama)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I have frequented many salons around the world so I am VERY fussy. I did not find this place to be professional. They are friendly but I certainly wouldn't label them as being professional.
    On one occasion, I had my pedicure ruined afterwards because the esthetician placed a blanket over my feet (during my facial which was given after my pedicure).
  • Tokyo Midtown (Landmarks & Historical Places / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • A comfortable and spacious facility which includes a 24 hour supermarket and Dean & Deluca in the basement. It is wonderful to visit around Christmas when they have all of the lights (Exit through the basement to get to the park).
  • Dean and Deluca: Roppongi (Coffee / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • Delicious sweets and cheeses but at a hefty price. Don't miss out on the delicious macaroons made by la mama...heavenly, melt-in-your-mouth, treats.
    The quiche and pastas are satisfactory when you want to take a rest from cooking...almost as good as home-cooking but not quite there.
  • Precce (Cheese / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • A very nice supermarket and I would have given it a 5 but they do not have English labels (like they do at Nissen). It does, however, offer an abundance of delicious, gourmet foods
  • Sin Den (Hair Salons / Omotesando, Aoyama)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I give this a score of 3 because they do hire good stylists who are either non-Japanese themselves or Japanese stylists who are comfortable with coloring and styling non-Japanese hair.
    However, I found management to be unprofessional and unkind.
  • Roppongi Hills (Landmarks & Historical Places / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • A complex maze of shops and restaurants that can leave visitors feeling flustered. I frequent this complex in order to visit May's Garden Salon and Estination/Bals. I have become familiar with how to come and go now but it certainly took sometime. So, if you are visiting, be prepared to get lost.
  • 109: Shibuya (Shopping Malls / Shibuya)
  • 2010/10/19
  • NOT for the faint of heart or over 30 set unless you wish to go just for the entertainment value. Very loud and head-ache provoking environment, especially when the 'shop girls' yell out IRRASHEMASE in those high-pitched, squeeky voices...they are cute however and it is interesting to see how the fashionable, young people are dressing these days.
  • Tiffany : Shinjuku Mitsukoshi (Boutique/Luxury Brands / Shinjuku)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I purchase all of my jewels at Tiffany's. My husband bought me my engagement ring at this branch. The staff at this branch, at least 11 years ago, seemed quite stuffy similar to the Tiffany staff at Mitsukoshi Nihombashi. I prefer to shop at the Tiffany's near Roppongi Hills b/c staff are much nicer. As for prices, no matter where you go: Vancouver, Los Angeles, Tokyo (as I have been), they are going to be comparable.
  • Tsukiji Fish Market (Landmarks & Historical Places / Tsukiji)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I concur with the previous reviews about what an awe-inspiring experience it is to visit the fish auction. I also agree that several 'bad apples', most likely visitors to Japan, have ruined it for us locals. I have not been groped by any 'pervy Japanese seamen' though....'Pervy American seamen' but certainly not Japanese ones...they are more scared of non-Japanese women than we are of them and I have lived here for 11 years LOL.
  • Franciscan Chapel Center (Churches-Catholic / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • A nice church that gives English mass. It is very crowded on Christmas Eve, so go early. The priests add a nice touch at the end of service which is to ask if there are any new members. He asks people to stand up if they would like in order to tell everyone where they are from. It is wonderful to see people from different parts of the world come to pray.

    As for being inspired? If you come to be inspired by the sermons then you will be inspired. If you come for the architecture, then it is indeed an older church.
  • Mori Art Museum (Museums / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • I have frequented this museum on several occasions. On one occasion, a fashion exhibit was being displayed. They had tons of dresses on display from different time periods. On another occasion, I viewed some artwork that was quite unsavory...something that you wouldn't want a young child to see.
    Make sure to go on a sunny day to completely enjoy the Panoramic View.
  • Oakdoor (American / Roppongi)
  • 2010/10/19
  • It has a comfy setting with dim lighting and warm decor. Many people come here to unwind with colleagues. The restaurant part offers good eats, nice char-broiled steaks and the like. The bar is encircled by stools and it will get very crowded on Friday nights so get there early if you want a place to sit down.
