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.

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.
