Located midway between Shibuya and Daikanyama, Nanpeidai is a leafy district
with a long and established history.
During the Edo period it was home to forests, farmland and Tokyo’s feudal lords.
Where embassies and residences are located today once stood the mansions,
or bukeyashiki, that were home to Shogun families.
From the Meiji Era onward, it has been a favoured address for diplomats,
politicians, international business leaders and celebrities.
The spacious streets and the walls of Oya stone, which survive to this day,
lie testament to the neighbourhood’s rich historical heritage.

The Westminster Nanpeidai is a highly curated residential property,
combining the distinguished design of renowned British architects
with the artistry of some of Japan’s master craftsmen.
A beautiful zelkova tree, more than a century old, stands at its entrance,
welcoming all comers as they arrive.

A collection of stone sculptures sit with great presence at the center of the courtyard of The Westminster Nanpeidai. These were created by Mr. Masatoshi Izumi, master stone sculptor and a long-term collaborator of the renowned contemporary artist Isamu Noguchi. To create the sculptures, he transported four pieces of Aji stone from Mure-cho, Takamatsu City, his local area, and integrated them with a piece of granite stone indigenous to the original building. The work represents both the long history and the intrinsic beauty of stone.

A clay plaster wall stands as a visceral backdrop to the courtyard. The work was created by Mr. Shuhei Hisado, a master plaster artist. The walls Hisado creates are widely known for their fine details, and his piece at The Westminster Nanpeidai offers this on a scale rarely seen. The pattern on the wall depicts autumn leaves falling over a pond and the resulting ripples. During the day and when illuminated at night it creates beautiful shades and shadows.

The lighting design of the building and courtyard was undertaken by Mr. Satoshi Uchihara, bringing with him an expertise honed from more than 600 lighting projects. At The Westminster Nanpeidai he boldly attempted, and succeeded with, a lighting technique which allows the courtyard and the entrance lobby – partitioned from each other by a glass window – to be integrated into one striking visual. At the building’s entrance he installed three types of lighting, each of which gently illuminates the iconic Japanese zelkova tree, adding warmth and a sense of arrival.

LOCATION Life Information

Nanpeidai – admired for centuries
by pursuers of a sophisticated life

Nanpeidai was home to farmland and woods during the Edo Period,
when samurai residences of the Tokugawa Shogunate once lined the streets
where The Westminster Nanpeidai now stands.
Nanpeidai, admired for generations by those in pursuit of a sophisticated lifestyle,
maintains this tradition with its array of embassies, churches and tree-lined avenues.
Only about 1,600 people live in the district,
which remains a quiet area despite its privileged location in the heart of Tokyo.
The neighbourhood is also home to an abundance of fresh air, open space and gentle greenery.
