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.

  • It is about an hour outside the main Conference Hall Gallery, Imperial resting place, Central Hall, vestibule, look around and visit. Brochure for parents ' instead of getting started, the watch in hand. Day by day, you can see the House of representatives side, so if you are lucky.

  • Errands and visited the lawmaker. Large buildings were built, about 50 billion yen over the current amount of money. All is I'm not 80 years. While a Western-style felt also in stone, is a relaxing and magical. Design depicting the student at the time, it is not or. Why, looking at places to take a break, walk the Emperor not to impress. Souvenir shops, I also sold stationery and your Cup, including sweets and illustrated the World President. Prime Minister faces were painted only hot and popular. Is the place you want to visit at least once if the Japanese. Photography is allowed there, and so is not. Inspiring Interior was not allowed to take. Visit we want to.
