The chic and pleasant neighborhood is a combination of quaint Edo-era shops and international residences. It’s located only a few minutes away walking distance from Roppongi Hills, but feels like a small town away from the chaos of the city. If you’re looking for a stylish, mature and quiet neighborhood to stay in, we recommend THE LIVELY TOKYO AZABUJUBAN for your next visit.
Azabujuban has some of the most traditional shops and restaurants in Tokyo. You can try soba at the 230-year-old soba restaurant, Sarashina-Horii, where all the noodles are made from scratch. They specialize in a special kind of white soba called Sarashina soba. You can also shop for senbei at souvenir shops such as Tanuki senbei, which reopened after World War II and is now run by its third generation of owners.
Eat Somewhere Trendy
In addition to traditional shops and restaurants, there are plenty of trendy, modern cafes and shops to visit, such as Blu Jam Cafe, which has American- Mexican food, and Green Brothers, which has delicious salads. The abundance of quirky cafes and trendy shops means you will have plenty of options to explore.
Visit Tokyo Tower
Just 20 minutes from THE LIVELY TOKYO AZABUJUBAN is the iconic Tokyo Tower. While you can view it from the rooftop bar, visiting it in-person offers a new perspective. From the observatory you can see a stunning skyline of Tokyo from which you can see Mt. Fuji on a cloudless day.
Attend a Festival
The Noryo Matsuri, which has lasted since the Edo period, is one of the most popular festivals in Tokyo, usually held at the end of August. The main attraction is the food stalls, where many local shops sell their items as part of a special menu at discounted prices. It’s held along Azabujuban Shopping Street, where THE LIVELY AZABUJUBAN is also located, making it a convenient festival to attend for guests at our hotel.
Grab a Drink at THE LIVELY BAR
After a long day of exploring the Azabujuban area, why not spend the evening at THE LIVELY BAR, where you can catch unforgettable views of Tokyo Tower while being served by some of the top bartenders in Japan? Original cocktails include the Azabujuban Tonic, which is made with a squeeze of grapefruit and a scattering of white sesame seeds, and the Azabujuban Onsen, which has a black color reminiscent of the spring water that flowed through the onsen that once occupied the grounds of THE LIVELY TOKYO AZABUJUBAN.
