An artistic area of design born in Roppongi
Tokyo Midtown, which continues to show what a new city should be since its 2007 opening, is a multi-purpose community consisting of 6 buildings and a wide green space. One of those buildings, Midtown Tower, has that view of a new skyscraper along with Roppongi Hills as Tokyo’s tallest building. Within Tokyo Midtown, there are various shops, restaurants, offices, a hotel, a clinic, and other facilities, and is also famous as a place for art. The Suntory Museum, a historical facility that was first opened in 1961, the art research center 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, and the base for the design network, Tokyo Midtown Design Hub, have all been moved and opened here at Midtown to hold a variety of planned exhibitions of any size. There is also the first-class hotel, Hotel Ritz-Carlton, within Midtown that has also become the talk of the town.
An area tour that suggests co-existence with nature
There is a green space at Tokyo Midtown that is so lush that it’s hard to believe that it is located in Roppongi, one of the main entertainment quarters of Tokyo. With the appearance of this green space, the area has transformed from just a mere place to consume and spend to a neighborhood to relax. In Midtown Garden, there are trees such as cherry and camphor whose branches spread out and a brilliant green grassy plaza which is filled with people taking a break. As well, LAN can also be used not just inside the buildings but in the garden so that you can make use of that high technology while relaxing there. In winter, there is a skating rink and Christmas illumination, and other various events held throughout the year, so that Tokyo Midtown has become a popular spot where endless numbers of people come to meet.
