About Akasaka

All things upscale, Akasaka is located close to Roppongi, and is a convenient stop for those looking to splurge. With luxurious accommodation, fine dining options, and shopping galore, prepare for a busy day of spending here.

Entertainment defines Akasaka, as it boasts bars and pubs at every corner, alongside towering skyscrapers, and with lush hilly streets of expensive housing and boutique shopping. 

The affluent district is home to Tokyo Midtown, a shopping complex that is also part of Roppongi. There, visitors may relax in the landscaped garden while sipping a cup of coffee.

Visit the Akasaka Sacas, an urban renewal project that is now comprised of four buildings that house large conglomerates and performance venues. A wide array of restaurants are located within the buildings and make for a great pit stop for afternoon tea.

Around the area also stands Ark Hills, the first of Tokyo's urban renewal projects. The Suntory Hall, a concert hall, Ark Mori office building, and ANA Intercontinental Tokyo Hotel occupy the plot of land. Visitors have the luxury of strolling through seven different gardens at Ark Hills and soak in the urban view.

Away from the glitz and glamour, Akasaka also has the Toyokawa Inari Temple. This temple attracts people from the arts and entertainment sectors, and is filled with artists and entertainers every New Year's Eve to pray for their success.
