National Diet Bulding
National Diet Building, the center of Japanese politics, started the construction in 1920 and took 16 years to complete. There are House of Representatives on the left side and House of Councilors on right side. Also, there are Prime minister's office and Political Party's buildings near by. Anyone can take a tour of the building without reservation and it's very popular with Japanese as a social studies trip (Japanese guide only.
Need reservation for English tours) . You can see the luxurious interiors such as Chamber of the House of Representatives and Emperor's Room.

- I didn't know that a can see the inside of it. I feel admiration for the kind guide of the staff of building. 60s・Man
