State Guest House, Akasaka Palace
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.
