There are plenty of "designer" stores that go with Midtown's theme of "design", so you can find designer phones and designer electronics of all types. There are plenty of restaurants, Western, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, French, Asian, and a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. There is also the Suntory museum that focuses on the "beauty in life", and the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT research institute where regular people and designers can see each other and exchange opinions, so Midtown also has a variety of state-of-the art design spaces available for people to explore. Greenery accounts for about 40% of the facility in Tokyo Midtown. In the Midtown Garden you'll find plenty of trees such as cherries and camphor trees, and there's even Wi-Fi in the garden, so you can stay connected to the internet while you enjoy the garden. To the east of Midtown in Minato is the Hinokicho Park which offers "an open space for kids to run around, playground equipment and a Japanese Garden to relax/have a picnic or leisurely stroll." In the facility is the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Tokyo which is not just a hotel but also a spa and a restaurant. There are also extensive medical facilities on the Midtown Tower 6th floor, where you'll find the Midtown Medical Center. They offer general medicine, orthopedic, ophthalmic, dental, and dermatological care. There is English-speaking staff for visitors, so if you become unwell while in Japan feel free to stop by.
