Government Building Tourist Spot
Take a tour of the lawmaking corridors of power in National Diet Building, the center of Japan’s politics. Completed in 1936, this spacious parliamentary building features a 65.45 m (215 ft) tall pyramid-like tower in its center. You will see the central hall, with a million-piece marble mosaic and the famous four seasons mural, as well as the emperor’s room, from which he makes an opening address to the parliament at the beginning of each session. Sign up for a free one-hour tour at the visitors’ reception behind the building when the parliament is not in session. The Diet is a three-minute walk from Nagata-cho station, or five minutes by foot from Kokkai-gijidomae station.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.

  • This building is very impressive. However, it is surrounded by many trees so not much visible. It was worth walking around.  more »
  • There were Foreign dignaties in the Siet whilst we were paying a visit to the site but it is a fine representation of modern Japanese Classical building  more »
  • The building is somewhat unusual but unless you're interested in Japanese politics, better go to other attractions.  more »

  • The national diet building was built in 1936. There are many policemen around this building. I watched them carefully. They look so young, in their twenties. When a severe trouble occurs, maybe, they are victims on the trouble. I felt little blue when I passed by them.
  • Beautiful building and free english tours! Great experience
  • This is the national political assembly of Japan and its called national Diet building. Prominent architecture and can be visible from the road.
  • They currently offer a one hour tour which takes you through the House Councillours and the central hall. The tour is Japanese only and an English brochure is provided for Foreigners at sign up. Architecture is very interesting and worth checking out.
  • It's beautiful I seen all paid my dream is watching it
