Japan House is the new cultural home of Japan in London. The venue, described as “a creative crossroads for Japan and the UK”, is an exhibition-led space spread across three floors of an Art Deco building on Kensington High Street. It is part of a global initiative led by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, whose aim is to provide a forum for creative and intellectual exchange between Japan and the rest of the world. This is the third venue of its kind. Guests are invited to explore, interact with, and immerse themselves in an authentic encounter with Japan’s rich and diverse culture through a series of exhibitions, events, workshops, and seminars and a retail floor of thoughtfully curated Japanese products.


Exhibition : Living Colours: Kasane – the Language of Japanese Colour Combinations

This exhibition explores the work of the Yoshioka Dyeing Workshop in Kyoto. The Japanese have long had a deep appreciation of colour and a close relationship with their natural surroundings and the changing of the seasons. The exhibition immerses visitors in a forest of colour – a series of colour combination displays – each communicating a specific seasonal message. You will have the opportunity to learn more about natural dyeing materials, the tools used, the dyeing process, Heian culture and literature, kasane, Yoshioka and the important work it carries out related to Buddhist ceremonies.


The Stand

We will meet at the The Stand which is located at the entrance of Japan House on the Ground Floor. Here you can try authentic Japanese teas and kissaten coffee before exploring the exhibitions and all that Japan House has to offer!
