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.

  • So stay close to have walked. To take the tour, or get inside if you want to take beautiful pictures, I said look at the trip since their appearance alone, around the great guard and picture to take in in a corral, looks good.

  • Television in that familiar building! We explore the red bus. Buildings coming up slowly, still another one somewhere only not. But in reality. Please read it.

  • It was more than expected. Refreshing form looks like is is truly made for horse wall with sculptures carved in wood and imported stained glass, embroidered decorations, statues and courtyard have been companions had horse-drawn carriage at that time water park (now the Koi is swimming), is 60 billion yen in current money, made. Red carpet is soft than you think is helpful.

  • 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.
