Known primarily as a business district full of skyscrapers that house giants like Disney, Netflix, and Facebook, it’s not your typical tourist hotspot. But, as I discovered during my exploration, there’s more to Toranomon Hills than meets the eye.
I love how the area has this modern feel, but still has so much greenery around. Also, fun fact! Did you know that Toranomon means Tiger Gate?
Its main attraction, the ‘stairs of success,’ is steep and challenging, symbolizing the hard path to prosperity and achievement.
Adding to the culinary mosaic of the area is a charming local rice cracker shop Toranomon Kiya known for its aesthetically pleasing and delicious rice crackers. I bought some as a souvenir.
Toranomon Hills, with its mix of modern development and historical sites, offers a unique experience. It’s a testament to Tokyo’s dynamic character – where the old coexists with the new. I highly recommend adding Toranomon Hills to your Tokyo itinerary to witness this fascinating blend firsthand. And if you decide to stay in the area, Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills is the best option by far! You can read my experience here.
