Japan House
JAPAN HOUSE operates three such hubs, in London, Los Angeles, and São Paulo.
Each hub features an exhibition space, a multi-purpose space with theater facilities, a retail space, food and drink, books, online connectivity, and a café space. The project merges together these functions, and the activities they enable, to introduce a variety of themes, in detail and with substance: the future of tradition, the passion of popular culture, the power of advanced technology, and the diverse appeal of Japanese food. Activities are designed to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, including those with no previous interest in Japan.

Japan House São Paulo
Prominently located on Paulista Avenue, Japan House São Paulo was designed by an eminent Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. It holds a facade of 70-year-old hinoki, Japanese cypress, and mesh covered with handmade washi paper, allowing visitors to feel the fine touch of traditional Japanese techniques. Since its opening in April 2017, Japan House São Paulo has reached 2 million visitors as of February 2020, and it has become one of the major cultural facilities in the city.
