Roppongi is one of the most famous areas of Tokyo. The station was built in 1964, and was built alongside an extension of the Hibiya line. At the end of the 20th century, the station underwent renovations, putting it on the Toei Oedo line as well.

Not only is it busy due to commuters, but also for people visiting Tokyo Midtown and Roppongi Hills. The station is built very deep down, with platforms on the 5th and 7th underground floors. Escalators and elevators connect them to the ticket gates and exits.
Places to see
Tokyo Midtown and Roppongi Hills are the most obvious places of note near Roppongi station. Both are connected to the station itself, but Midtown is closest. The site Midtown currently stands on was originally occupied by the old department of defense, and Midtown itself was finished in 2007. It contains offices, restaurants, and the Ritz Carlton Tokyo hotel, as well as the Suntory Art Museum. Midtown Tower contains 54 floors, though only the lower ones are open to the public.
Next is the massive shopping center Roppongi Hills, opened in 2003. It contains a multitude of shops, centered around the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. The TV studio TV Asahi calls this place its home, which also boasts a movie theater, and the Sky Deck from which one can see the beautiful Tokyo night city lights. The viewing deck is actually taller than the one at Tokyo Tower, and on a clear day you can see for miles.
