History of Akasaka Palace

The State Guest House Akasaka Palace was built in 1909 as the Crown Prince’s Palace, and is the only neo-baroque palace building in Japan. It is a building that brought together the collective strengths of the Japanese architecture, art, and craft worlds at the time, and shows the achievement of full-fledged modern Western-style architecture in the Meiji period. Ten years after World War II, Japan returned to the international community, and as the number of distinguished guests from foreign countries increased, large-scale renovations were carried out to make it a national reception facility, and a new Japanese-style annex was established. In 1974, it embarked on a new journey as the current State Guest House, and continues to this day. After that, in 2009, after the large-scale renovation work, it was designated as a national treasure as one of the representative works of Japanese architecture.
