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.

Housed in a handsome structure built in 1955 and enlarged in 1976, it is a working international community engaged directly in a variety of programs that embody the free exchange and interaction of ideas and that strive to foster a climate favorable to international cooperation.

The International House received designation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a Special Corporation in the Public Interest, a status conveying special tax benefits, in November 1989. As of April 1, 2012, the International House received authorization from the Prime Minister's office to become a Public Interest Incorporated Foundation.

  • Good place to meet. Reasonable room rates. Typical mid range hotel food. Ti g t in the heart if the city. Great bilingual library on Japan cultural, historical and political events.
  • A little older style building but still a great place to hold meetings. They also have an enjoyable breakfast buffet. Foreigners may feel like they are entering a private club, but most of the area including the garden in the back after open to the public.
  • Good for meetings, conferrences etc. Little old building. Very polite staff.
  • Great place, but a bit too formal. Typical of Japan I guess.
  • Awesome place. Serene, beautiful and calm. Amazing food and hospitality. Beautiful lush green garden at the back.

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.
