As the name implies, Akasaka Station is located in Akasaka, a residential and commercial district of Minato in Tokyo. The Chiyoda Line, a metro line administered by Tokyo Metro, is the only line that stops at Akasaka Station. 

Akasaka Station is a busy station as it lies adjacent to two very important and famous landmarks of Tokyo. These landmarks are:

The National Diet Building:

The National Diet Building is located adjacent to Akasaka Station. It is in this building that both the houses of the Diet (Parliament) of Japan meet. Sessions of the House of Representatives take place in the left side of the building, and sessions of the House of Councillors in the right side. Completed in 1936, the building is constructed entirely out of Japanese building materials and reflects a modern hybrid architecture of both Western and East Asian designs.

Tokyo Broadcasting System, Inc.:

The Tokyo Broadcasting System, Incorporated , or TBS for short, is a famous landmark in Akasaka. Located just 2 minutes walk from Akasaka Station, the TBS is popularly known as the “Big Hat” as the building appears to be wearing a hat. The Tokyo Broadcasting System, Inc. is a television network in Tokyo.
