Top 5 Things to do in Roppongi Hills with Kids by: Lucas

Are you planning to go to Roppongi Hills but you're not sure if it's worth it, because you're traveling with kids?

Don't worry, here are the top 5 things to do in Roppongi Hills according to a 5-year-old kid:

Top 5: Giant Displays

The first cool thing that you will see is the giant spider.  It is called "Maman" and is actually an artwork of Louise Bourgeois.

Go down three floors to see the headquarters of the famous TV Asahi.  It is a nice place to discover Japanese TV culture.  Lucas likes it because of the life-sized displays such as Doraemon.

During the summer, there are a lot of Doraemon scattered all around Roppongi Hills, probably hundreds of them!  We were lucky to catch the promotion of Toy Story 4 and the Pixar exhibit in the Mori Art Museum.

Cost: Free (entering TV Asahi may have an entrance fee during seasonal events)

Top 4: Treasure Hunt

Well, it's more like a pretend treasure hunt that I invented just to get him to follow me around while I take photos of the public art and street furniture designs.  Roppongi Hills is one of the two redevelopment projects in Roppongi, one of which is Tokyo Midtown.  Both are famous for it's towering art museums.

If you're into art, you can go inside Mori Art Museum and be amazed by Japanese art exhibits.  We entered "The Soul Trembles" by Shiota Chiharu.

Cost: Free
Entering Mori Art Museum is not free. Visit their website for the latest price.

Top 3: Sakurazaka Playground

If you see 44 colorful robots stacked on top of each other, you've reached Roborobo-en.  It's a playground with 10 colorful slides of different heights.

Cost: Free

Top 2: Mori Garden

I was surprised that this was Lucas' Top 2, and even beat the playground.  I guess he's drawn to nature!

This garden is so beautiful during the Sakura season.  All year-round, it is a good place to relax, eat snacks, or watch a group of men wearing business suit play Pokemon during break time.

Cost: Free

Top 1: Lego Store

This is not surprising.  The kids are allowed to play around and moms are not pressured to purchase.  This shop is tax-free for tourists.  I don't think I need to say more.

If you're into luxury shopping, then this is the place for you because there are a lot of big brands here.  You can also try different cuisine here.  Also, depending on the season, they have sponsored events where you can join the locals celebrate.

Oh, if you're the budget is really tight. There's Mc Donald's where meals are even cheaper than in the Philippines!

Cost: depends on you of course =)
