Tokyo Midtown


in Roppongi, Akasaka & Around

This sleek complex, where escalators ascend alongside waterfalls of rock and glass, brims with sophisticated shops. Most notable is the selection of homewares and lifestyle boutiques, including The Cover Nippon and Wise-Wise, which carry works by Japanese designers and artisans, on the 3rd floor of the Galleria section.

The Suntory Museum of Art is also here. Behind the complex is Hinokichō-kōen. Formerly a private garden attached to an Edo-period villa, Hinokichō was reopened as a public park. The adjacent Midtown Garden is a cherry-tree-lined grassy space that makes a perfect spot for a picnic; events such as free yoga classes are sometimes held here.
