Head to Kensington, London to explore this retail, exhibition space focusing on all things Japanese.
‘Presenting the very best of Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation, and technology, it deepens our appreciation of all that Japan has to offer. Part of a global initiative led by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there are two other Japan Houses in Los Angeles and São Paulo’
‘The varied offer includes an exhibition gallery, a theatre, a ﬁne-dining Japanese restaurant and a retail ﬂoor of thoughtfully curated Japanese products. This is complemented by a diverse line-up of exhibitions, events, workshops, and seminars‘
