(1user review)

Opened to the public on a limited basis, the neo-Baroque beauty also known as Akasaka Palace is welcoming visitors again in February, and this time is a little special: in addition to the main building and garden, you can view the opulently decorated Asahi no Ma room, which is soon set to be closed for a two-year renovation. On February 13 and 14, opening hours will be extended to 8pm, with the palace illuminated for the occasion.

Really beautiful, it is like a mini Versailles or Buckingham palace. Very easy to explore, very organised, with lots of english speaking staff and english audio guide. The queue is a bit tricky and confusing, we got there really early but didn't understand that the beginning of the queue was actually in front of the gates, across the street. So in the end we had to wait like 200 people pass in front of us. But still it was super quick, we were there before 9:30 anyway.
