Roppongi, a business world of its own in the middle of Japan, is widely known throughout the country. With its massive skyscrapers, such as Roppongi Hills and Izumi Garden, it offers an urban center worthy of world fame, and a commercial area where many of the respected leaders of the business world give their very best each day.

However, it has plenty of different buildings as well – luxurious hotels, mansions, and other commercial facilities, such as Midtown, to which overseas visitors, families, and others gather on daily basis in great number.

But, when the night comes, the city changes its colors and undergoes a complete makeover – it shows its neon-light side, shining brightly like a true shopping district. The streets are overflowing with people heading to clubs and bars, to experience Tokyo's nightlife. That is the true glamour of Roppongi, its two, almost opposite, looks for the day and the night.

It is no wonder, then, that only the best of the best chefs, Japan’s prominent figures in the world of cuisine, gather in Roppongi, where you’ll find high-class restaurants on every corner. Just imagine gazing at Tokyo Tower or Tokyo Skytree from a restaurant located at the top of some luxurious hotel or a skyscraper! This time, we bring you to three such wondrous restaurants in Roppongi, where you’ll be enchanted by both the food and the night views over the city.

1. NAKED

First on our list is a restaurant that provides dinner and a spectacular night view of Tokyo Midtown, which is located a one minute walk from Roppongi Station on the Hibiya and Toei Oedo Lines. The name of the restaurant is NAKED, and just like the name implies, its most attractive feature is its glass-wall ambiance – the restaurant’s walls are made of see-through glass in order to allow their customers to admire the night scenery to their heart’s content all while enjoying their dinner.

Perhaps the most exciting time for night-gazing is the Christmas season when all of Tokyo Midtown gets hypnotically bright with winter illuminations. Savoring your first-class dinner while gazing upon the breathtaking lights of the city is a time well spend in extravagant ambiance.

The menu has a wide variety of delicious dishes from all over the world – Japanese traditional dishes and world’s cuisine at one place, to fulfill the wishes of each and every customer. Those who care to try the traditional Japanese meals can choose from numerous types of dishes, and those who are feeling nostalgic for their home food can rejoice, too. The restaurant can provide customers with various types of beverages as well, including alcoholic drinks such as beers, cocktails, whiskeys, Japanese traditional sake and shochu (a Japanese distilled alcoholic beverage usually made from rice, potatoes, barley, etc).

Wait no more and head to NAKED restaurant, to treat yourself to some delicious food while appreciating the night look of Tokyo Midtown.

2. Towers Modern Bistro

Next up is a restaurant inside the very famous Ritz-Carlton Hotel. You will find Towers Modern Bistro on the 45th floor of this hotel, and here you’ll also find a superb view of the two world renowned towers in Tokyo, Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree. And yes, you guessed it right – that is where the name of this restaurant comes from.

The main idea behind this restaurant is a “modern bistro” that introduces a wide range of foods from various parts of the world. It has a reputation of being a world-class restaurant that uses ingredients from Japan in abundance to create the tastiest dishes possible. Apart from that, both their menu and services are available in English as well, so anyone may dine carefree on high quality dishes from around the world at Towers Modern Bistro.

One thing is for sure – this restaurant’s magnificent view isn’t something that can easily be found anywhere else in Tokyo. Leave it up to Towers Modern Bistro to give you the ultimate pleasure with its savory meals and the two towers – truly the topmost Tokyo scenery you can get!

3. The French Kitchen

The French Kitchen is our third honored candidate, one based in Roppongi Hills from where you might find yourself  engrossed by the night scenery of Tokyo.

The French Kitchen is one of the many restaurants inside the Grand Hyatt hotel, which is a part of Roppongi Hills. It is located on the 2nd floor of Grand Hyatt, and, although its location isn’t that high up in the air when compared to the previous restaurants, you can still admire the grand sight of Tokyo Tower from there. What sets it apart from other places is its terrace, which allows you to relax in the fresh, open air, while relishing both the surroundings and the food.

Should you, by chance, be interested in experiencing an original yet traditional bistro atmosphere while appreciating stylish-looking dishes, you’ve come to the right place. Its charming ambiance has a different feeling throughout the day, so together with the menu and the service you can relish a pleasant breakfast, have yourself some lunch, or savor a dinner, even enjoy some pleasant time at the bar, all at one place. It will conform to the necessities and desires of its customers at any time, and since it can provide them with service in English as well, everyone is welcome to spend some cozy time at The French Kitchen.

There are many urban areas with massive skyscrapers lining the streets, like Shinjuku, Marunouchi or Akasaka. And as Roppongi is in the very heart of those areas, it really does paint a picture of an astonishing metropolis with its never-ending sea of skyscrapers and buildings. How about diving into this dazzling concrete sea, so representative of Tokyo, and treating yourself to a gorgeous dinner in Roppongi?
