Roppongi:
       
 
Roppongi is the night club district of Tokyo "par excellence" where many locals joined by foreigners enjoy a night out in bars, dancing clubs, and coffee shops. Probably due to the numerous foreigners living in the area as well as the several ambassies/consulates located nearby, Roppongi houses a variety of international restos, such as french, american, italian, indian, thai, etc. There's a very special street ambiance on friday/saturday evenings during which many young people dressed exotically can be seen roaming around. Being primarily a residential district, the bars/clubs are spaced out over a large area: Here are several shots of the big and small streets taken just before sunset within a km radius of the Roppongi subway stop [on the Toei Oedo line station E23 and the Tokyo Metro Hibiza line station H04]. As well, some indoor pictures of the recently opened Roppongi Hills shopping area are included. A few places in Roppongi worth mentioning: the Motown I and II as well s the Gas Panic bars are popular places amongst the locals to meet foreigners.
