Ark Hills (アークヒルズ, Āku Hiruzu) is a major office development by Mori Building Company in Minato, Tokyo. Completed in 1986, the complex includes the ANA InterContinental Tokyo Hotel, the ARK Mori Building (a 37-floor, almost 2,000,000-square-foot (190,000 m2) mixed-use tower), the world-class Suntory Hall concert hall, a TV studio and several apartment buildings. TV Asahi still uses its former headquarters as an annexe for some of its departments and subsidiaries; the network's headquarters themselves were moved nearby building designed by Fumihiko Maki in 2003. Every September the area celebrates with an autumn festival that includes music, dancing, food, art, and shopping.

The name "ARK" is derived from the location of the complex at the intersection of the Akasaka, Roppongi, and Kasumigaseki districts. (Another explanation is that the name stands for Akasaka and Roppongi Knot.) It is built on a slight slope, rather than a hill.

The heliport on the roof of the Ark Mori Building is used to provide direct flights between Narita International Airport and Ark Hills (approximately 20 minutes) it was discontinued on December 1, 2015.

  • Nice to meet friends near Roppongi area, a lot of restaurants and coffee shop around
  • It is a shopping center/ office building/ restaurant/hotel and opera complex that has a few gems to discover. A French bistrot and the restaurants around are worth checking out. A few coffee shops too. It is well connected to subway and many bus lines. The bakery in the intercontinental hotel is worth checking.
