The restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Making a reservation in advance is recommended. Book a table on the AKIRA Restaurant page.
Our cloakroom is open for all visitors and attendees of events however, due to restricted space, we cannot accept any luggage larger than a cabin bag (56 × 45 × 21cm). Visitors to the exhibition are advised that all bags (except small shoulder bags) need to be stored in the cloakroom prior to entering and, as part of our security procedures, we may ask to search your bag before it is left.
Japan House London works very closely with the Metropolitan police and our security and visitor experience staff are trained to ensure guests have a safe, secure, and enjoyable experience. If you see anything suspicious, please let one of them know.
No sharp objects are permitted at any time (including knives and pen knives).
Please note that we are unable to allow over-sized luggage into the Gallery. Your cooperation in these matters is greatly appreciated.
Well-behaved dogs that are small enough to be carried are welcome on the Ground Floor at Japan House London. Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the building.
Japan House London is a COVID-secure venue and the safety of our guests and staff remains our priority. The wearing of face coverings is at the discretion of our guests and staff.
