Spend a Day in Roppongi
Here is a mini-guide with ideas on how to spend a day in Roppongi.
There is no better way to kick off your morning than with Bricolage bread & co. This bakery is famous for serving its bread even at some of the Michelin restaurants in the area. You can try any of its freshly baked bread, pastries, and morning sets, which are served every day (except for Mondays) from 8 AM to 10 AM, and you won’t regret it.
After a good breakfast, you can begin with your cultural binge. There are three main art facilities in Roppongi, known as Roppongi’s Art Triangle. The Mori Art Museum displays big names in modern art and architecture, while The National Art Center, is one of Japan’s largest art venues and presents large-scale and immersive exhibits. The Suntory Museum of Art specializes in Japanese art and offers regular tea ceremony events. Another art highlight includes the design museum 21_21 Design Sight, designed by a famous designer Issey Miyaki and architect Tadao Ando. If you’re after something less touristy, Roppongi also boasts dozens of small art galleries along with a variety of public art.
This is a good option for anyone who is looking for a cool chill place with delicious healthy vegan food. You can choose between falafel in pita bread or falafel bowl, or order one of their vegan sandwiches or pizzas.
For a coffee break head to one of the many coffee shops in the area. For example, Blue Bottle Coffee Roppongi or Verve Coffee Roasters both offer great specialty coffee and are located in really beautiful spaces.
Roppongi is a paradise for anyone who loves and appreciates good shopping. Here you will find two main mega-shopping complexes. The first one is Roppongi Hills, which is mostly known for the Mori Art Museum but also boasts a cinema, an art gallery, a hotel, an observatory, and many luxury stores of both Japanese and international brands. The second one is Tokyo Midtown, which features several stores that offer Japanese craftsmanship as well as fashion boutiques and concept stores.
Just like for breakfast or lunch, there are way too many dinner options in the area of Roppongi. However, we would like to recommend this izakaya called Jomon. There is a special unique vibe to this place, also the service is great, and of course, the food is astounding.
