Hills "Around Roppongi"
The area around Roppongi has many hills. Geographically, Roppongi is on elevated ground so if you go in any direction from the Roppongi crossing, you will go downhill. It sits on higher ground so that you can overlook the surrounding areas. In the old days, it was a Samurai residence, but recently embassies and other such buildings line the streets in the area.
When you go out for an enjoyable lunch with a date or a friend, or with work buddies, of course, you want something delicious to eat, but good service and a nice ambience is also important. At this time, we would like to recommend the restaurant "UPSTAIRS".

History of Roppongi
From Edo to Meiji periods, what was once a quiet residential area of Roppongi, underwent a transformation and a fashionable town was created.

It is hard to imagine that the dazzling Roppongi of today was a military town but in the Meiji period, the Army infantry first regiment and third regiment were assigned there and Roppongi was an area where the soldiers lived.
