About Akasaka

Akasaka is a town in Minato, Tokyo. It is to the north of Roppongi. In the southwest corner, you will find the Tokyo Imperial Palace. Akasaka, was once the Samurai’s residency in the Edo era but it has been transformed by high buildings, hotels and fancy restaurants. While predominantly designed for residential and commercial purposes, Akasaka also features many antique shops and hotels. The name Akasaka originated from “Kinokunizaka”. It is an area that boasts first-class hotels and foreign embassies. Like Roppongi, Akasaka is now a notable entertainment venue at night. Another distinctive feature of Akasaka is the abundance of exclusive clubs and top-notch Japanese restaurants. You can see the political face of Akasaka, as the Prime Minister's Office of Japan is located here. TBS Broadcasting Center (often referred to as ‘The Big Hat’) is also found in Akasaka. Interesting historic attractions include the Hie Shrine and the Akasaka Myougonji Temple (Toyokawa Inari Shrine).
