  • The roofs of Tokyo station and the same thing with the building of the Meiji era. Inside I feel the historic stained glass Windows, chandeliers, etc. On the red carpet guests can relax. The building overlooks the garden on sunny days.

  • Came after after visiting the cloud Museum on the Hill, the Sun was. Western-style building built in the Taisho period is a national important cultural property. Hirohito also stayed in the build and decor are very helpful. It is so amazing and surrounded by green trees on the slopes of the Castle, was lit up at night.
