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.

  • In it can be enjoyed. Ferris wheel was one hour. Enter your address or your last name ago the start time submitted, toilet baggage inspection, enters from the pedestrianized for the houses of Parliament. One guide me to lightly over one hundred corporate customers and individuals who work together. Passed through the Parliament first of all do well on television in Conference room, 10 minutes to listen to the description of automatic speech. That after GA, accompanied by Mr. will be guided through the guide sent from leave and cannot hear any. Do not know... Because once passed out brochures, dark room. It is pretty tough.

  • The Parliament has become Tokyo's leading tourist attractions. Completion of the 0/1936 (1936) is a reinforced concrete building symmetrical shape. Towards the front and left the House of representatives, on the right is House of councilors. On TV often has to be just around the corner and see the houses of Parliament, is overwhelming in its size and presence.

  • 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.

  • 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.
