Japan’s metropolitan capital, Tokyo city sprawls over the south eastern side of Honshu, the country’s main island. Formed in 1943, it is renowned to be the largest metropolitan area of Japan. It is home to the Imperial Palace, the seat of the Japanese Government and within its boundaries dwell the Japanese imperial family. With a seamless blend of historical culture and corporate facilities, Tokyo has grown to be one of the fastest developing cities.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, more popularly known as Tokyo City Hall, is headed by a metropolitan administration and a publicly selected governor. The Government administers the villages, towns, cities and prefectures that make up Tokyo and plays an important role in its international presence.
Towering at 243 metres, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building held the title of the tallest building from 1991 to the latter part of 2006. The popular tourist attraction draws visitors to its two panoramic observation decks that stand at 202 metres high – offering viewers the soaring cityscape and Tokyo’s urban skyline. The design of the building was meant to bear a resemblance to a computer chip and also includes many other iconic touches, such as the split in the two towers at the 33rd floor reflecting the appearance of a Gothic cathedral.
