State Guest House, Akasaka Palace迎賓館赤坂離宮

Other Sightseeing Spot

This building was built as the Imperial Palace for the Crown Prince in 1909 on the former site of Edo residence of the Kishu-Tokugawa clan. It is currently used as official accommodations for foreign dignitaries from abroad and can fairly be called the cornerstone of Japanese diplomacy. The elegant western-style building, Japan’s only example of Neo-Baroque architecture, was the first post-Meiji period cultural asset to be designated as a national treasure.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
