Roppongi Nightlife and Clubs

Got some friends visiting Japan this winter. They want to do the 'Roppongi night out'. I haven't been for ages now, so I'm looking for suggestions on good spots to go to; clubs, bars, anything. Oh, and where to avoid! It'll be 3 dudes, all over 30, and, yeah, Roppongi.

    I think you should go to Shibuya Ageha, just join the event and enjoy. If you go to Roppongi, the chance of meeting Nigerian friends and reject by the establishment is very high. If you are looking for something special, take a look at Kingyo in Roppongi. http://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2005/02/13/to-be-sorted/go-go-kingyo/

    Sorry that I can't help you, but I'm curious to see what others are going to say. I've yet to have a night out in Tokyo.

    Ask the Nigerian dudes or maybe Romanians, they always know where the best places to party are. No no, I'm joking.... Or am I?

    Samantha - I want to go somewhere where there are other people, not just a 'plant' who's going to charge me 50,000 yen for a coupe of drinks and the privilege of seat at the bar. trekkingbecky - A night out in Tokyo is a must! Not necessarily Roppongi though!

    Roppongi... shudders!! It's been a long time, but I do hope to revisit someday and laugh at my 20 old something self for spending so much time there. Have they visited yet? Where'd you go? If they haven't arrived yet, how about the Pink Cow!! http://www.thepinkcow.com/ It doesn't involve being escorted to the bar to ensure you actually buy a drink... or maybe they want that quintessential experience? :-p

    Thanks Saitama. Not happened yet. I'm not sure what kind of experience they want at this stage. I'm not sure even they know. Maybe it'll become clear on the night. The Pink Cow. Looks interesting. Cheers. I'll do some more research though, as it might be a bit classy for what they're after!!

    True that, it'd be a shame to go all the way to Roppongi and not go a bit wild. You can do conservative anywhere, anytime. Truth; while I don't miss many aspects of Roppongi, it is a great place to hang out with friends. Have a great time wherever you go.

    ELE Tokyo in Roppongi is a good spot. Just remember that almost all bars and clubs charge as much as double for men then women.

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!
