Roppongi Redevelopment

Poste date: Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Roppongi has been known as an international entertainment district to enjoy nightlife. 
Many restaurants, bars, and clubs gather in Roppongi.  It is one of the most popular spots among foreigners who like to go out as well. 

Roppongi has changed greatly due to redevelopment in the past 10 years, and is now recognized also as an international business district and a hub for the latest art and culture.  

Major developers such as Mori Building, Mitsui Fudosan, Sumitomo Realty & Development, etc. have completed large-scale re-development projects in the Roppongi area.  The areas where small, old buildings gathered around narrow paths are now reborn as multi-complex buildings housing offices, residences, hotels and entertainment venues.  Following these developments, major Japanese and foreign companies relocated their offices to Roppongi, and many internationally renowned brands opened a branch in Roppongi.  In addition, a cinema complex and an art museum opened.  Such developments resulted in an increase in the number of tourists visiting Roppongi.  Roppongi continues to evolve shifting from a district only for nightlife to an all-day entertainment district.
