CHIYODA

Chiyoda is the central ward of Tokyo which is famous for the Tokyo Imperial Palace, Tokyo Station and Diet Building. Our Chiyoda Guide includes Chiyoda attractions, hotels and an interactive Chiyoda map.

Chiyoda is the historical and modern home to political power in Japan, housing the Tokyo Imperial Palace and modern government buildings including the National Diet Building. Chiyoda ward only covers 12 kmĀ², but it also manages to fit in several parks including the very beautiful Imperial Palace East Gardens and Kitanomaru Park. Chiyoda also includes many corporate headquarters in the Marunouchi section, along with the famous electric town of Akihabara (This section has too much information to include on this page).
