The Tokyo governor’s new official residence in Shibuya, built at a cost of 1.2 billion yen, was opened to reporters Aug. 19. Gov. Yukio Aoshima and his family are slated to vacate their apartment in Nakano Ward and move into the new two-story house at the end of this month.

The new structure, occupying a 2,213-sq. meter area in central Shibuya, replaces the former official residence, built at the same site in 1927.
