TOKYO MIDTOWN HIBIYA is a shopping mall that opened in March 2018 in Tokyo's Hibiya district, bringing more options for those who wish to indulge in high-end goods.

At 35 floors high, the complex has shops located from the first basement floor to the seventh floor, while corporate offices occupy the remaining floors. Inside, the mall gives off a glamorous air with its pristine white walls and spacious lobby. Designed to give an air of elegance to the place, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya exudes comfort to shoppers.

Premium brands such as Ishida Watch Galleria, The North Face, and Quorinest are part of the bespoke line-up that Tokyo Midtown Hibiya offers, making it a choice stop for many. Not to be outdone by retail outlets, restaurants in the complex serve Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and French cuisine, among others. Established dining places like Sushi Namba, Kikuya Tokyo, and Lubina present delicious options for visitors.

Movie-goers will be delighted to know that a new location for TOHO CINEMAS with about 2,800 seats has also opened here. On the sixth floor, named "Base Q", there is a major conference hall, a lounge and a cafe that serve as meeting points for businessmen. Outside, there is a garden terrace to bask in the sunshine.

Tokyo Midtown Hibiya's architecture was inspired by the Rokumeikan, a now-demolished building that once symbolized Tokyo's Westernization. The building stands out with its curved faces among the surrounding straight-edged skyscrapers, and is surely to become the newest landmark in Hibiya.

Visitors will find it a convenient place to stroll about as the complex is directly linked to the Hibiya, Yurakucho, and Ginza stations, providing easy access to commuters. As the imperial palace, Hibiya Park and the Ginza shopping district are within walking distance of Tokyo Midtown Hibiya, it is the perfect place to spend part of your day if shopping is a cornerstone of your itinerary.

 

Getting There:

Take the Tokyo Metro to Hibiya, Yurakucho, or Ginza stations, or the JR Yamanote Line to Yurakucho station.
