Japan House is...

Opening in 2018, Japan House London is a new cultural centre offering visitors an experience of the best and latest from Japan. Housed in a Grade II listed, Art Deco building, the three floors will include a gallery space with a rotating programme of exhibitions and events, a Japanese restaurant and an extensive retail space.


Japan House London is one of three cultural centres around the world alongside Los Angeles and São Paulo. Each Japan House is dedicated to Japanese art, design, food, technology, innovation, and craftsmanship.

Exhibitions & Events

Expect to enjoy a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, film screenings, performances, talks, workshops, and more.

Food & Drink

A casual café stand on the ground floor and a Japanese restaurant on the first floor will emphasise the rich regional diversity and seasonality of Japan’s cuisine.


The Japan House London retail space is a thoughtful edit of Japanese goods and a showcase for fine craftsmanship and design with an emphasis on regional specialist producers.

The full Japan House London website will be launching soon.
Meanwhile, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out more.

We look forward to welcoming you to Japan House London.
