The National Diet Library has a great collection and the building houses some displays. Books and journals (etc) are requested using an "online" system and delivered to you whilst there. You can get photocopying, but not take books out. It is for the serious library...More

Unless you're a scholar or something, there is nothing there for a casual tourist. I don't think there are many books that are in other languages but Japanese. Skip it.

I think it was really interesting but you have to register to in into this place, it took about 10 min and the I had my access card. Again this place is probably only interested if you are into National library

There's a lot of journal and books. You can't borrow the books, but you may photocopy it or read it there. This library is for 18 and above. I love to see the culture of reading here.

Thank aizuemi

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.
