In the Edo period (1603-1868), Roppongi was a gateway town with temples and shrines, and from the Meiji period (1868-1912), military facilities of the former Japanese Army were located there.
After the war, the GHQ was situated in the area, and stores catering to foreigners developed faster than in other Japanese regions. You can see the vestiges of this in the fashionable streets of today.
Adjacent to Minamiaoyama, Akasaka, Toranomon, and Azabu, Roppongi Hills and other large commercial facilities, office buildings, and luxury condominiums line the streets, making it one of Tokyo's most popular shopping areas.
Although the area has a strong image of being flashy, it is also an area where work, play, and living are well integrated. It is a popular tourist destination full of urban attractions.
