It is an imposing structure, and houses the upper and lower houses of congress in Japan. If you take a stroll around the Imperial Palace you can't miss this landmark, near the National Theater.

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

There was no dress code displayed in writing when I attended, but the Japanese tend to be more formal than Western cultures so too casual attire might be frowned upon (although not outright banned).
