Uchisaiwaichō (内幸町) is a district of Chiyoda, Tokyo, at the south-east corner of the ward bordering with Chūō and Minato. Uchisaiwaichō Station on the Toei Mita Line is located in the area. Parts of the Hibiya Station and Shimbashi Station are also located in the neighborhood.


In the late Edo period, the present-day Uchiwaisaichō area was a part of the Hibiya area with many daimyō's mansions and was located within the outer moat of the Edo Castle.

After the Meiji Restoration, it was known for a time as Uchiyamashita-cho before the name "Uchisaiwaichō" was adopted after its location between Saiwaibashi Bridge (幸橋, Saiwaibashi) on the Outer Moat and Saiwai Gate (幸御門, Saiwai-gomon). It was the original home of the Tokyo National Museum.


Before Yamato Life declared bankruptcy, its headquarters was in Uchisaiwaichō.[3]
