Red twice the note written, Mikio, but not really comprehend why named the Diet-building?
As no health matter, only political, why called like this?
Nevertheles, 33 marble diff. stones is impressive, you might get to a maximum closeness to show this archi.-style.
On picture it is giving the right impression as a unique building.

An interesting note and also a very interesting picture. This building looks, for me, very traditional and local in its style. The high rise behind looks more modern and "western". Ii shashin!

You have made a good attempt here, choosing to go in tight on the National Diet Building. The composition works well, and the excellent focus draws full attention to the building. The building structures are very well-exposed and well separated from clean sky in BG. Well done.

Fine view of your Diet building, with shrubs, trees and street leading into it. The architecture design is an attractive blend of Romanesque and Georgian styles with two sets of columns ascending, then the unusual pyramid design on top of it all.
Thanks for sharing,

A well detailed urban shot despite the diffuse light of the lazy afternoon with the edifice beautifully dominates and lush of green does make a nice frame in the corners. Good natural colours and contrast, with lovely touch of some bright vivid colours for good visual effect. Excellent capture and fine effort as always, TFS
