The National Diet Library is the biggest library in Chiyoda, Japan, housing a massive collection of every book published in the country. Because of its colossal catalog of books, most are in vaults, some 8 floors below the ground. In the heart of the former Tokyo City, Chiyoda is near the Imperial Palace, Hibiya Park, Supreme Court, and the National Diet Building. The area gets busy with tourists in good weather, so finding a hotel close by is best in November.
