Inside the Meijiseimeikan

Posted in Places by tokyobling on January 29, 2015

If you are ever in Marunouchi on a rainy day (we’ll have quite a few of those in the following months) I can recommend visiting the splendid Meijiseimeikan which is one of the landmark buildings of Marunouchi and open to the public on weekends. Getting inside it can be a little tricky but walk around and you’ll soon find an entrance. The building is famous for being the old site of the military occupation government after the war and where General MacArthur like to hang out. Being sturdily built and very close to the Imperial Palace also meant that it survived the worst of the bombings and is still in use today. These photos are of the first floor but there is more to come!

    I hope I can visit next time! (It must be scary for whoever has to wipe the window panes up so high.)
