Hatoyama Hall is a Western-style residence commissioned in 1924 by former Prime Minister Ichiro Hatoyama. This is where he formed the Liberal Party (currently the Liberal Democratic Party) and prepared as Prime Minister to normalize diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. The British-style design uses reinforced concrete, which was rare in those days. The 2,000-square-meter site has a courtyard, where roses and other flowers bloom from season to season. In 1996, it was renovated and became Hatoyama Hall to commemorate his achievements. It is now open to the public year round. The residence is also used as a location for shooting films, TV dramas and commercials. A seven-minute walk in the direction of Gokokuji from Exit 2 of Edogawa-bashi Station on the Yurakucho Line, or an eight-minute walk left along Otawa-Dori from Exit 5 of Gokoku-ji Station on the same subway line.
