  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nakashima Dental Office (Dentists / Roppongi)
  • 2010/09/28
  • My husband and I visited this dentist for several years. He was professional and efficient. However, his secretaries were sometimes inefficient due to a language barrier which was why we changed dentists.
  • Hinokizaka (Traditional Japanese / Roppongi)
  • 2010/09/28
  • A wonderful restaurant located in the Ritz Carlton. My husband and I had Teppanyaki and it was delicious. You are able to enjoy sushi and tempura as well. The food is nicely presented and the atmosphere is pleasant. It is a Michelin star 1 restaurant. The service is friendly as well. It is very expensive though.
  • Fureika (Chinese / Azabu-juban)
  • 2010/09/28
  • It is a nice restaurant. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very relaxing. They had live harp music as well.
  • Morimoto XEX (Sushi / Roppongi)
  • 2010/09/28
  • The food at Morimoto XEX was delicious. The decor was modern and the general atmosphere was comfortable.
  • Japanese Red Cross Medical Center (General Hospitals / Hiroo)
  • 2010/03/18
  • The place to be if you have an emergent situation. Red Cross is about taking care of people from all around the world. The nurses were professional and caretaking, the doctor was an expert in his field. The only down-side was the nutritionist who was overzealous, even going through my garbage to see what I was eating.
  • Living Motif: Roppongi (Interior Design & Furniture / Roppongi)
  • 2009/07/19
  • Beautiful, modern goods for the home but at a steep price. This store is all about customer service for frequent customers!
