[2]Temporary Imperial Palace(1952-1968)

Meiji Palace was burned,
so the third floor of the Imperial Household Agency Government building
was rebuilt, and the Temporary Imperial Palace was built.

This building was built in 1935 and is still used as the Imperial Household Agency Government building .
