National Diet Building, Chiyoda
(3.9/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Hours 15 minutes before, could participate easily. Since he went on a school trip from gaining the right to vote, and also could be seen from a different angle. Since the close distance between the Gallery Hall is surprisingly narrow, there is a chance I'd love to sit in on. Was going to buy a souvenir of the Parliament here, but not sold in the National Assembly. Go to the stop of the bus crossed the road and cannot buy it. It was kinda annoying.

  • 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.

  • Alright as a building. Not very interesting in general as with many other gov buildings.
  • It was great!
  • Not bad
