Centrally located & beautifully presented. Very well guarded. The gardens are a must visit, we loved walking through them admiring the views & fish in the ponds.

This building is very impressive. However, it is surrounded by many trees so not much visible. It was worth walking around.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.

There was no dress code displayed in writing when I attended, but the Japanese tend to be more formal than Western cultures so too casual attire might be frowned upon (although not outright banned).
