Roppongi Hills

One of the original monuments to the redevelopment of the once seedy Roppongi area of Tokyo, Roppongi Hills opened in 2003 as an “integrated development” of residential, commercial and business space. Though it was designed as a place where residents can live, work and play in the same space, the truth is only the extremely wealthy can afford to live in Roppongi Hills, drawing into question the success of the vision. Still, it is one of Tokyo’s most beautiful skyscrapers, especially at night. The upper floors house the Mori Art Museum and the Tokyo City View viewing floor, which affords one of the best views of Tokyo Tower.
