Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi

Metro: Roppongi's insider take:

Does Tokyo's latest shopping, working, living, dining, and entertainment complex, which includes this earthquake-prone city's tallest building, the Midtown Tower (814 feet), relegate Roppongi Hills to "yesterday's destination"? Greenery-deprived and mall-loving locals, who relish Tokyo Midtown's cherry tree–dotted (and Wi-Fi accessible) grassy parks, seem to think so. Built in the heart of Roppongi on the site of the former Defense Agency, this is a great rainy-day destination. Check out the complex's art galleries, museums, and chic boutiques, or just wander and people-watch. With dozens of eateries, including Coppola's Vinoteca, which features wines from the film director's Napa vineyard (Tokyo Midtown Garden Terrace 2F, Akasaka 9-7-5; 81-3-5647-8301), and an outpost of New York's own Union Square Café, you'll never go hungry (Tokyo Midtown Garden Terrace 9-7-4, Akasaka Minato-ku; 81-3-5413-7780; Better yet, book a suite at the complex's new Ritz-Carlton Tokyo (Akasaka 9-7-1, Minato-ku; 81-3-3423-8000; And if you decide you want to stay forever, the hotel also has luxury residences.

Open daily 11 am to 10 pm.
