The International House of Japan is a private, non-profit organization incorporated, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation and other private institution and individuals, in 1952 for the purpose of promoting cultural exchange and intellectual cooperation between the peoples of Japan and those of other countries.

As of April 1, 2012, the International House received authorization from the Prime Minister's office to become a Public Interest Incorporated Foundation.

    Party was available. I'm from Roppongi Station, Azabu-10 station, either go and see a map or get lost. Linen No. 10 station body and Hill for me, in it was hard it was raining. To Roppongi Station on the way back, but this is almost flat. This is wonderful often forget that the venue was dropped on the garden level, right in the middle of the city.

    the cafe inside is peaceful and has a view of a Japanese garden. There are always few people, mostly elderlies. Recommendable for short stays at the hotel and a Sunday brunch at a quite atmosphere.

    A quiet tranquil spot in the middle of Tokyo. The rooms are very comfortable. Great choice for business meetings.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
