A Walk around Roppongi Hills / 六本木ヒルズの散歩

Okay okay I know my blog posts are not in real time as I took this walk some time around April but I try to keep them in chronological order as best as I can.  You all know I'm so far behind on writing about my latest experiences.  The biggest being a change of jobs - but I don't particularly want to write about that.  So, in April I was meeting a friend in Roppongi Hills but I got there early so I decided to walk around and check things out.

わかってる わかってる。ブログネタがリアルタイムじゃないこと。この散歩は4月頃で実行した。ネタはなるべく行動したタイムラインで書いてつもりなので、季節外れのネタがちょくちょく。一つの大きいな理由は仕事の転職。でもその話はあんまり書きたくない、面白くないし。でわでわ、4月に六本木ヒルズで友達と会う約束があって、ちょっと早めに着いたらその周辺を散歩しました。

The bus to Roppongi Hills lets you off at the Mori Building.


Yes, it's a giant spider - this is to be our meeting place.  Scary but cool!

はい、でっかい蜘蛛です! ここが待ち合わせ場所。 不気味でもカッコいいね。

Since its such a short walk from Roppongi Hills to Roppongi I decided to wander around there as well (after meeting with my friend for lunc).

六本木は六本木ヒルズの隣だったので、六本木も久しぶりの探索 (もちろん友達と会った後)。

This was the sight of a popular Swedish restaurant (one I've been to a couple of times) and was sad to see it boarded up like this.  I thought, "oh no, has this restaurant gone out of business too?" but then I read a couple of the notices on the door which mentioned that the restaurant has moved to a new location.  I should go there again soon.

Hope you enjoyed the short walk around Roppongi Hills and Roppongi.  Until next time!
