National Diet Building, Chiyoda

(3.9/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • The building is somewhat unusual but unless you're interested in Japanese politics, better go to other attractions.  more »
  • It is an impressive building and one worth visiting if your are near Hibiya Park of the Imperial Palace. Walk from Hibiya past the Palace moat on the right and the Police and other government building...  more »
  • If tour is the upper House, on weekdays at any time (no parliamentary time), the House of representatives has a set day of the week. Day dismissed the proceedings at the reception desk and is in charge of description and other to us. In the meeting hall appeared on television and luxury types still and resting place over about an hour, we could see.

  • 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.
