Talk:Tokyo/Roppongi

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

This article's a bit opinionated, especially with the use of the words "desperate." I've been to Gas Panic several times, and would hardly qualify myself as such.

This is not Wikipedia, we're allowed to be opinionated. Incidentally, nobody living in Tokyo ever admits to going to Gas Panic, yet they all do =) Jpatokal 21:13, 24 May 2005 (EDT)
Well Gaspanic is admittable if your below 25. But nobody EVER admits going to Motown. And of course I have never met a couple who would admit having met in Roppongi whatsoever.

"Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Roppongi Hills Hillside 2F, 6-10-1 Roppongi, tel. 03-5772-7500, [8] (http://www.robuchon.com/). The first overseas venture of the eponymous Paris-based Michelin-starred chef. Each dish is a work of art almost as breathtaking as the price tag, at ¥1000-4000 per dish."

Is this price a typo? It seems a little cheap for the 'expensive' section? Thewayoftheduck 05:58, 5 Feb 2006 (EST)

Why so? ¥4000 per dish is a leedle expensive even by Tokyo standards... Jpatokal 08:31, 5 Feb 2006 (EST)
Heh. Just couldn't get my mind around Michelin and $40 tops. Just googled it (should have done that first. sorry!) and the course menus range from 2900yen to 12800yen, but there are indeed (presumably small) dishes for 1000yen. Ignore the above :) Thewayoftheduck 23:11, 6 Feb 2006 (EST)
This is more important that the prices of individual appetizers (especially as I've once gotten a starter in a fancy Japanese restaurant that consisted of three (3) beans), so I've added in the course pricing. Jpatokal 23:42, 6 Feb 2006 (EST)

avoid the roppongi crossing "main street"[edit]

One piece of advice that this article lacks is that all the "hustlers" congregate on the main street near roppongi crossing. Real places that japanese people go to are beyond the main street. Never believe someone that approaches you in the street for a proposition - especially here! If possible, take some adventuresome Japanese people with you, that could help have a good time.

I tried to delete the reference to the "Almond" but they put it back. The Almond closed some time ago, so don't arrange to meet people there!

Exchange rate of the century[edit]

500 Yen for 100 USD.

We have a saying in Finnish: you're not a fool if you sell, but you're a fool if you buy. Jpatokal 09:55, 15 June 2007 (EDT)
