With a lot of shops, several museums, bars and clubs, Roppongi is one of the most urban and buzzing areas in Tokyo. However, there are also places where you can enjoy lunch in a quiet area surrounded by lush greenery. This time, we will introduce two restaurants with terrace seating in Roppongi!
Surrounding Tokyo Midtownーa complex with apartments, offices, shops, restaurants, a museum, and a hotelーis the Sakura-dori Street, which is lined with cherry blossom trees. It’s a popular spot where you can enjoy the four seasons. In spring, the more than 100 blooming cherry trees look like pink clouds.
The area is well worth a visit for the autumn foliage as well, but the timing is important to catch the short period of time the leaves are red and yellow. Decorating Tokyo Midtown for a much longer time are the gorgeous and very romantic winter lights during the cold season. This is one of the most popular illumination spots in Tokyo.
Feel the four seasons! Lunch at Union Square Tokyo
Union Square Tokyo is a restaurant which is originally from New York. It just reopened in March 2020.
All meals on the menu are made with carefully selected ingredients. It is no wonder that the restaurant is sometimes fully booked with reservations. The restaurant’s terrace seating is very comfortable with a nice view on the Tokyo Midtown garden and the cherry tree-lined street.
