Ark Hills (アークヒルズ Āku Hiruzu?) is a major office development by Mori Building in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. 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 its annexe for some of its departments and subsidiaries. Every September the area celebrates with an autumn festival that includes music, dancing, food, art, and shopping.

The name "ARK" comes from the fact that the complex is on the "K"not of Akasaka and Roppongi. It is built on a slight slope, rather than a hill. Residents of the building include business travelers and celebrities.

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) since April 2009.[1]
