National Diet Library

Boasts the largest number of foreign-language books and materials. Only a fraction is on shelves (mainly reference material), so you have to go through the catalogues to find what you want and then submit forms so the books can be fetched from the stacks. Reference only; Must be 18 or older. English-language guided tours for foreigners. They are about one and a half hours in length, including a videotape introduction to the Library (for reservations: fax +81-3-3508-2934, or e-mail [email protected]).
