Walk from the Roppongi station to the Roppongi hills complex. It is the best known as a night life destination and daytime also of course (but it is more fascinating in the night). Then head to the 52nd floor, the Tokyo city view and observation Deck to Mori tower. There is also Mori art museum on the 52nd and 53rd floor.

The spritual heart of Tokyo and home to the city's most popular Buddhist temple Senso-ji(浅草寺). It is pure Shitamachi old tokyo. In Asakusa, one day is not enough to have a complete visit. So what to do is visiting Senso-ji temple and nearby Asakusa- Jinja Shrine(浅草神社).

Don’t forget to enjoy the skytree view, walk along until you arrive to Tokyo Skytree(東京スカイツリー), the most famous tower after Tokyo Tower enjoy the shops and the restaurants surrounding the tower, I recommend this spot it is romantic beautiful and unforgettable, before leaving you can buy some birthday key chaines  for your friends and Family.
