The Consulate-General of Japan in Saint Petersburg is the consulate of Japan in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is located at 29 Nabereznaya Reki Moiki (Russian: Набережная реки Мойки,29) in the Tsentralny district of Saint Petersburg.[1]

The building was constructed in 1851 for Aleksey Lobanov-Rostovsky, with reconstructions and extensions in 1868 and 1875.[2]

The decision to open a consulate-general in Leningrad, as it was then named, was taken by the Japanese cabinet following a bill passed in the Diet. This happened on 30 March, 1971 with effect from April 1.[3] This was part of a consular agreement in which consulates were also opened in Osaka, Sapporo and Nakhodka.[4]
