Tokyo Showa 1930s Unknown
The Akasaka Imperial Detached Palace in Tokyo was built on the land formerly owned by the Owari Domain which presented it to the Imperial Household after the Meiji Restoration. Constructed between 1899 and 1909 as a residence for the Crown Prince, the Neo-baroque structure was designed by Tokuma Katayama, a student of Josiah Conder. It was originally named Togu Palace (Palace for the Crown Prince) but later renamed Akasaka Imperial Detached Palace. Regent Crown Prince Hirohito lived here from September 1923 till September 1928. Since 1974, the palace is used an official guest house of the state.
