ROPPONGI:
- Roppongi Hills, Mori Tower, Mori Garden, Tokyo Midtown, Hard Rock Café, Tokyo Tower

Roppongi is a district, part of the Minato ward where many westeners live. It literally means ”six trees”. The area is know for its many nightclubs, concerts, restaurants, bars and other forms of entertainment. The centerpiece of the Roppongi district is since 2003 the 238m high Mori Tower, standing on a hill. It is one of the world’s largest buildings by floor space, has 54 floors and features a 6-storey shopping galleria as well as the Mori Arts Center, a museum on the top floors of the building (with a circular atrium reminding of the dome of the Reichstag in Berlin) and an outdoor observation deck. Roppongi is one of the few hilly districts of Tokyo, especially Roppongi Hills. The Roppongi intersection is famous, featuring a highway bridge with a text ”Roppongi” crossing. Almond Café is a popular meeting place. At night it comes alive with neon lights and clubs . One of two Hard Rock Cafés in Tokyo is in Roppongi, and the Snoopy Museum. Next to Mori Tower is lots of expensive brand stores, and the Grand Hyatt hotel. Opposite the tower is a popular spider sculpture. In the slopy Roppongi Hills there is a quiet residential area with mainly small scale townhouses and a few residential highrises, reminding a bit of San Francisco. Midtown Tokyo is a complex built in 2007, in Akasaka near Roppongi, that includes the 2nd tallest skyscraper in Tokyo (248m), that also features a mall, sculptures, a garden, a  Ritz-Carlton hotel, offices, restaurants and more.  Sumitomo Roppongi Grand Tower (230m) from 2016 and Izumi Garden Tower (200m) are both skyscrapers with green glass exteriors. Ark Hills Sengokuyana Mori Tower is a futuristic skyscraper from 2012.

- Takeshita Street, Omotesando, Harajuku Station, Owl's Forest, Cat Café, Shibuya

Harajuku is a district in the Shibuya Ward, known for the Harajuku railway station in historical western style, and the Takeshita Street, a narrow pedestrian street very popular with young people. Here you find a cat café, an owl café and a dog café. It is popular for teenagers with fashion stores, music stores, candy stores and cafés. Coz players can sometimes be seen here, but we didn’t see any during our visit.

SHIBUYA:
- Shibuya Crossing, Shibuya 109, Tower Records, NTT DoCoMo Yoyogi Bldg, Humax Pavilion, Cosmo Planetarium, Hachiko the dog, Shibuya Station

Shibuya is a ward and a district, just south of Shinjuku, mostly famous for the Shibuya Crossing, where crowds of people are crossing from all sides at the same time. It can be seen from above from a rooftop called Shibuya Crossing View. Surrounding this intersection are Shibuya Station, large buildings with neon lights, department stores and skyscrapers. Tower Records, a large record department store is located in the area. Shibuya is know for its fashion stores and nightlife for young people. Shibuya 109 is a circular landmark building in one intersection, housing a tall department store for young women. In the 11th century Shibuya was the site for the castle that resided the Shibuya family. Omotesando is a tree-lined avenue with fashion stores and malls with significant architecure, and the venue for the annual St Patrick’s Day parade. This is the where Harajuku begins (separate page), the famous youth fashion/cozplay district and shopping street. The black, robot like Humax Pavilion from 1992 (a postmodern cinema that was designed by Hiroyuki Wakabashi) can also be found in Shibuya as well as the Hakicho dog statue (after a dog that came back from its owner at this spot) right oustide the large Shibuya Station.
In the Sendagaya district of Shibuya, you find NTT DoCoMo Yoyogi Building, one of Tokyo’s greatest landmarks. It is a 272m tall skyscraper with a clock tower and spire, built in 2000, that is extending the Shinjuku skyline and can be seen from many parks.

ODAIBA and RAINBOW BRIDGE:
-Rainbow Bridge, Fuji TV Building, Statue of Liberty, Aqua City Odaiba, Metro, Views, Skylines

Odaiba (Daiba) is an artificial island, built in the 1850s for defensive purposes where you find the Port of Tokyo. Daiba formally refers to one district of the island development in Minato Ward. Odaiba is connected with Minato ward in central Tokyo with the beautiful suspension bridge called the Rainbow Bridge, built in 1993. It is 798m long and a famous landmark with its 126m high towers.
On Odaiba Island you find the high tech 25-storey Fuji TV Building by Kenzo Tange, with its globe and external escalators (built in 1993), the Odaiba Statue of Liberty (lower then the one in New York), a high ferris wheel, Galleria Grand, Aqua City and other malls, restaurants, nightclubs, luxury hotels and Tokyo Big Sight, a futuristic exhibition building complex (built in 1996) that will be used during the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Tokyo has a busy port, opened in 1941, but the one in nearby Yokohama is even more important. Yakatabunes (privately owned Japanese boats) can be seen illuminated on Tokyo Bay at night.
We entered Odaiba Island with the driverless metro train that goes through the Rainbow Bridge, a rollercoaster like ride with nice views! When looking at the Odaiba Statue of Liberty (a smaller version of the one in New York), Rainbow Bridge and the skyline, one might assume that you are looking at Manhattan. It was very pleasant watching this view from Odaiba, especially during sunset and after dark.
