Charm of Tokyo, Roppongi
General Manager at Grand Hyatt Tokyo
My family now lives in the neighborhood of Roppongi and, before arriving in Tokyo, I was informed that this was a culturally sophisticated area with an innovative community. After my arrival and living here, it was just as I had imagined it would be, a place full of energy which can be felt through all of the senses. Grand Hyatt Tokyo is in a remarkable location and has a role inside -- and is a part of -- Roppongi Hills. This is an extremely powerful and exciting lifestyle area that is full of activity, art and culture, encompassing as a means to experience Tokyo. I am certain that first-time visitors will find it very special and will appreciate Roppongi's convenience and safety.
