Roppongi Hills is a central Tokyo landmark, and is well-known as the
preferred office location for many top IT companies in Tokyo. Current
tenants include Google Japan and Gree, and the likes of Yahoo! Japan,
Livedoor, and Rakuten have all had their head offices there in the
past.

Its internal carpark space offers about 1,900 parking slots [J], and
as space is a precious commodity in densely populated central Tokyo,
it’s no surprise that most of these parking spaces are inside a
section that stacks vehicles up vertically.

Here’s an interesting video posted by YouTube user cat2525jp. She or
he intentionally left a working video camera on the dashboard of the
car to be parked.

The first half shows the car being loaded, and the rest is the
unloading. Parking here costs 300 yen (US$3.6) for 30 minutes.

A similar video from another user 113icecream was shot in Roppongi
Midtown
, where Yahoo! Japan has its head office. Parking here will set
you back 100 yen (US$1.20) every 10 minutes.
