Three Years of Japan House London

Opened in 2018, Japan House has since welcomed almost one million visitors through its doors, hosting 10 exhibitions showcasing the works of Japan’s leading creative experts and running over 320 events.

The success of the Japan House exhibition programme – which has displayed the work of artists from a variety of fields including internationally-renowned manga artist, Urasawa Naoki, textile designer Sudō Reiko and celebrated architect Sou Fujimoto, has resulted in numerous cultural, educational and commercial partnerships. Attendees to the hundreds of events held have been able to listen to talks from leaders in fashion, architecture, textiles, art, travel and other disciplines.

On the occasion of Japan House London's third anniversary Director General Michael Houlihan said:

“Our first three years have presented some unique challenges, but also an exciting new vision for the future of Japan House. Our strong partnerships and the creativity of our Team have enabled us to build a more inclusive offering for a wider audience in the UK and beyond. Whether real or virtual, stories told by Japan about Japan remain the cornerstone of Japan House.”
