Roppongi Hills Center/Роппонги Хиллс

Roppongi Hills is a hotel in Tokyo that has a lot of shops and restaurants around it. There is also a movie theater and an observation deck. It's a place where people come to hang out, so there is even a subway station nearby called "Roppongi Hills." It gets pretty crowded and loud at night, but it is all good fun.

Роппонги Хиллз это отель в Токио, рядом с которым расположено большое количество ресторанов и магазинов. Еще в этом отеле находится кинотеатр и смотровая площадка. Это любимое место отдыха многих жителей Токио, в ресторанах заключаются и отмечаются деловые сделки, проходят семейные торжества.

Escalator from subway conveniently leads to the hotel complex.

Эскалатор из метро ведет прямо к комплексу отеля.

And if you have not yet noticed, the hotel was hosting the Tokyo International Film Festival.

В это время в отеле проходил Токийский международный кинофестиваль.


This is the Mori tower, named after the tycoon who built the entire complex. The observation deck is on the 52-nd floor.

Это лицо отеля -- башня Мори, названная в честь магната, построившего этот комплекс. На 52-м этаже находится смотровая площадка.

Also, along the way to the hotel. there is a great view at the Tokyo tower.

А еще, на пути к отелю, открывается отличный вид на телевизионную башню Токио.


Modern architecture is everywhere around here.

Современная архитектура комплекса.



This is the observation deck; it spans several floors and has a showroom on the loft. There was some Japanese architecture exposition at the time, no pictures were allowed though.

А это смотровая площадка. Она занимает несколько этажей, и здесь даже есть выставочный зал на верхнем уровне площадки. В то время показывали выставку японской архитектуры, но фотографировать не разрешали.


Tokyo from the 52nd floor. Tokyo is a huge but it is not too tall. The skyscrapers are located only in some parts of town.

Вид на Токио с 52-го этажа. Токио очень большой, но не высокий город. Здесь небоскребы встречаются только в некоторых районах.



A baseball stadium.

Бейсбольный стадион.




The other buildings of the hotel complex.

Остальные здания комплекса отеля.




Tokyo Tower again.

И снова телевизионная башня Токио.



Evening bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Вечернее движение. В одну сторону свободно, а в другую -- пробка.



There are cafes, bars, and restaurants on the deck. Needless to say, it is very hard to get a table here, the places are always busy.

На смотровой площадке есть кафе, бары и рестораны. Тут всегда много народу и найти свободный столик не так уж и легко.
