This building is very impressive. However, it is surrounded by many trees so not much visible. It was worth walking around.

The building is somewhat unusual but unless you're interested in Japanese politics, better go to other attractions.

It is an impressive building and one worth visiting if your are near Hibiya Park of the Imperial Palace. Walk from Hibiya past the Palace moat on the right and the Police and other government buildings to the left and it will be in front.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art

Hi. Would like to enquire if there's a dress code to enter the Diet Building?

There was no dress code displayed in writing when I attended, but the Japanese tend to be more formal than Western cultures so too casual attire might be frowned upon (although not outright banned).
