Living With: the Prime Minister of Japan Residence
Unlike the predecessors, the current prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe resides at a privately-owned condominium in Tomigaya, Tokyo.
The prime minster of Japan is given 2 quarters – one being the Official Residence (kantei), where his duties are conducted, and the other being the Residential Quarter (kotei), a primary residence for living. These two building are located right next to each other (and connected) in Nagatacho, the Capitol of Japan.
Ever since Mr. Abe was sworn as the 96th prime minster of Japan, he has been commuting from his mother-owned condominium with a reason quote, “I can rest better here.”
The condominium, is named Tomigaya Heim (built in 1999) and it is located in a quiet neighborhood of between Shibuya and Shijnjuku. From the residence, it is 15 minutes drive to the diet building.
