Electric Roppongi

Roppongi has been modernized w/new complexes + museums. It's also known for it's nightlife. We visited Roppongi Hills (Tokyo City View, Mori Arts Museum & Mori Arts Center Gallery), Tokyo Midtown (upscale fashion + design complex) and 21_21 Design Sight (design museum from Issey Miyake and Tadao Ando).
