Toranomon Yokocho includes famous restaurants such as Torishige, a restaurant established 70 years ago, and ELEZO HOUSE, a referral-only restaurant in residential Shibuya. Diverse a la carte choices are available, even from operators known for serving only course meals at their main restaurants, making it possible to sample a rich variety of cuisines and cooking styles.

Special drinks are offered at a craft gin brewery that uses famous Tokyo-based Shima shochu and pure water from Tokyo's Oume mountainous area. Toranomon Yokocho Cellar boasts various bottles of wine that can be enjoyed in any of the restaurants thanks to a universal Bring Your Own (BYO) policy, enabling visitors to pair favorite wines with foods from Tokyo's top eateries.

Another highlight is Toranomon Yokocho POPUP Restaurant, where in-vogue restaurants will appear one-by-one, on a rotating limited-time basis, under the supervision of noted food critic Mackey Makimoto, the creative force behind the unique lineup at Toranomon Yokocho.

Toranomon's first upscale supermarket

Together with Toranomon Yokocho, the retail areas comprise 7,600 square meters of cumulative space with 59 shops that have been selected to meet the needs of both office workers and local residents. Some of the many highlights include an upscale supermarket, Toranomon's first large floor for product sales, and a floor that sells gifts commonly given in Japanese business settings. It also has a diverse range of restaurants for everything from casual lunches to formal business dinners, all combined together in a brand-new setting for highly pleasing shopping and dining experiences.

More of the same. Japan does not have a single big surface luxury supermarket. Most of them look shabby, small, outdated and with very limited choice. Lucky we have Costco.

The other outlets are also more of the same. And if a Line app is considered an innovation in Japan, we are in trouble

ELEZO HOUSE, a referral-only restaurant in residential Shibuya

Referral only, huh? There are literally thousands of amazing eateries in Tokyo that you don't need a membership to enter, and even better, they're not located in yet another soulless Mori Building complex.

I suppose there are some folks that really go for this, but from my perspective, they can get lost. [Trying to stay somewhat polite here.]

These "Hills" places are a blight and are absolutely boring. They destroy the charm and character of so many neighborhoods. Tear these things down.

"Large-scale retail facilities add life to Toranomon Hills Business Tower"

Life? More like lifelessness. I'll admit that the opening of Roppongi Hills 17 long years ago in 2003 was exciting. But the novelty wore off quickly after that with all of the other "Hills" shopping complexes opening in Tokyo. These places remind me of sterile, duty-free airport shops. It's not exciting to see such places in the middle of a huge city.
