Breathtaking is the only word I can find to describe them: you will feel transported back to the salons and ballrooms of 19th century Europe and get a sense of the grandeur of the Meiji restoration period.
While sightseeing in Tokyo, I was heading back to my hotel on the subway and decided to jump off and take a look at the Akasaka Palace since I had some extra time before dinner, as it was a little after 4pm.

For some funny reason the FLW Imperial Hotel lobby is at the back, so you are forced to walk by everything else, which is mildly interesting, but the FLW is the crown jewel.
The buildings were well preserved and reconstructed, and thoughtfully laid out against the beautiful landscape.

It is a lovely museum of english renaissance architecture and it was the previous prefectural government office and assembly hall.
We were met here by Paul from Kanazawa adventures and he explained the pillars with the contemporary art in contemporary and historical styles of local artisans.
This is all straightforward good planning but there has been attention to detail in the huge glass roof as you exit the main hall to get your bearings on the city with a weather proofed area and lots of artwork.

Entrance is free and comes with free lockers, free English audio translations.
You can find about old building techniques of the castle, the features of constructions.
The Kobuntei is in the park and one has to pay a small entrance fee.
After walking up a flight of steps to the second floor, there is the Aomori Nebuta Tunnel which shows the festival origins and history, as well as creation process of the floats.
There are accounts of the history of development of the Nebuta floats, the artists who design and build the Nebutas, and cross-sections of part of the floats to show how, for example, the limbs of the giant figure...

The view from the Tokyo Skytree which you can see from the height of 450 meters(approx 2000 feet) is superb both during the day and night.in the evening the Tokyo Skytree is beautifully lighted
Mt Fuji is simply so much more magnificent to see via Shinkansen and if you really want to see the whole city, the Shinjuku Metropolitan Building offers some amazing views too for much less.

Tokyo Tower

This attraction is an excellent part of the Tokyo visitng itinerary; it is managed to the highest possible standards, the staff are simply a delight and the whole structure, inside and out is spotlessly clean.
Visit the observation deck for amazing views across Tokyo, take time to visit the stalls on the floor beneath and just outside there is a fabulous crepe stand..yum Definitely well worth a visit

Magnificent statues, sculptures, reliefs, and whatnot pepper both buildings where you can spend quite a few hours viewing the exhibits and reading the excellent English descriptions most of them have.
No photos allowed, but there is a number of surprisingly affordable catalogs of the collection (primarily in Japanese but with English summaries)

It is an amazing place to tour if you're even just slightly interested in archeology and also close to the delightful Aomori Museum of Art.
In addition there are some excavated exhibits, including climate protected ones, of the original findings of pottery works, burial artefacts, building foundations etc.
Easy to navigate, with the fashion and art beautifully displayed.
