Nagoya-City Aichi Prefectural Government Office

  • Aichi Prefectural Government Office

The Aichi Prefectural Government Office building is the seat of Aichi’s government and was constructed in 1938 within the grounds of Nagoya Castle’s outer third bailey. With its elegant oriental styled roof, the Aichi Prefectural Government itself is reminiscent of a Japanese castle.

Designed by architect Nishimura Yoshitoki, designer of the Tokyo National Museum, and award winning architect, Watanabe Jin, it consists of 6 floors, with a single underground basement. The structure stands 39.79m high, and covers 4,666 m2, providing 28,314 m2 floor space. As with a number of government related buildings constructed at the time, the offices, when seen from above, show the structure as an intersected rectangle, with a row of corridors and offices separating the north and south wings, which resembles the first character in the word for Japan, Nippon, or 日 !

The Aichi Prefectural Government Office building is registered as a National Cultural Asset, and it is rare that such a historical building is still in use to this day. Despite being the local government offices, and the office of the Governor of Aichi, the building, and the adjacent Nagoya City Hall are both often used as locations for period dramas and movies.
