How to get to Roppongi?

Roppongi is known as one of Tokyo's busiest areas, with complexes such as Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown. It's also home to a wide range of famous restaurants and cultural facilities, making it a town where you could spend a whole day sightseeing and never get bored. In this article, we will tell you how to get to Roppongi, if this is the first time you are visiting here.

Where is Roppongi located?

Roppongi is located in the center of Tokyo's Minato Ward, adjacent to Shirokane, a famous luxury residential area, and Toranomon Hills, a new Tokyo landmark that opened in 2014.

The main station is Roppongi Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya and Toei Subway Oedo Lines. Other stations in the Roppongi area are Roppongi-itchome Station on the Tokyo Metro Namboku Line and Nogizaka Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.

From Roppongi Station, you can reach Akasaka Station, Aoyama-itchome Station, and Azabu-juban Station in about 20 minutes on foot, making the area easily accessible to other cities.

How to get to Roppongi

There are several ways to get to Roppongi. Tokyo has a great transportation system and here are a few ways you can choose.

Train & Subway

If you take a train, follow the next routes.


From Tokyo Station, take the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line bound for Ogikubo and change to the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line bound for Nakameguro at Kasumigaseki Station. From Shinjuku Station, you can take the Toei Subway Oedo Line bound for Roppongi/Daimon and arrive at Roppongi Station in 9 minutes without changing trains.
However, it takes about 5 minutes to get off the platform at both Shinjuku Station and Roppongi Station, so be careful with your schedule.


From Shibuya Station, take the Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line bound for Oshiage and transfer to the Toei Subway Oedo Line at Aoyama-itchome Station, and you will arrive at Roppongi Station in about 12 minutes. Another route is to take the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line bound for Asakusa and transfer to the Toei Subway Oedo Line at Aoyama-itchome Station.

Car

If you are going to Roppongi by car, the next route is available.


This route is based on the assumption that the destination is Roppongi Hills.


First, if you are coming from Shibuya, get off at the "Takagicho" exit on the Metropolitan Expressway No. 3 Shibuya Line.

If you start from Suginami or Shinjuku, take the Gaien Exit on the Metropolitan Expressway No. 4 Shinjuku Line; if you start from Ikebukuro, take the Kasumigaseki Exit on the Metropolitan Expressway Inner Circular Route; For Meguro/Haneda/Shinagawa, take the Iikura Exit on the Metropolitan Expressway Inner Circular Route; for Ueno/Chiba/Shiba-Koen, take the Shiba-Koen Exit on the Metropolitan Expressway Inner Circular Route.


It also takes about 90 minutes to get there from Narita Airport via the Higashi Kanto Expressway (Wangan Ichikawa - Itako) from the Shin-Kuko Expressway, and the Iikura exit of the Metropolitan Expressway Central Circular Route.


From Haneda Airport, take the Metropolitan Expressway Wangan Route, then the Metropolitan Expressway Inner Circular Route, and use the Iikura Exit. The required time is about 40 minutes.

Taxi

If you are heading to Roppongi by taxi, you can find taxi stands near big subway entrances such as Roppongi Station and in commercial complexes such as Roppongi Hills and Midtown.


However, due to the heavy traffic of cars, motorbikes, and bicycles in Roppongi, we recommend getting off at the taxi stands of each facility and walk to your destination.

In addition to the Toei Bus, the Minato City Community Bus Chii Bus stops at the above bus stops. You can also ride the "Chii Bus" for 100 yen per ride. Furthermore, pre-school children can ride for free, so you can easily get to Roppongi with your children.
