Rediscover the pleasures of reading at Japan House London's Library through our changing exhibitions and permanent collection.
The Library is accessible and free to visitors seven days a week during Japan House opening hours. Visitors are welcome to take a seat and become engrossed in an eclectic range of volumes on Japanese culture and innovation, that are often hard to find elsewhere in the UK.
There is no need to book your visit to the Library, but guests numbers are limited to six people at any one time.
Japan House London is a COVID-secure venue, which means that we can continue to operate in line with the UK Government guidance. Please visit our COVID-19 webpage for more information about the measures we have implemented to ensure your safety.
