Located in the heart of Hollywood, the newly opened JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles serves to showcase the best of Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation and technology, offering a rich experience that intrigues the five senses. The organization’s mission is to provide a forum for creative and intellectual exchange and deepen mutual understanding.

JAPAN HOUSE LA’s current exhibition, Prototyping in Tokyo, is an interactive exhibition introducing the advanced technologies utilized by Professor Shunji Yamanaka in his development of cutting-edge prototypes. The exhibition highlights the importance of prototypes as objects that link new technologies and society, offering a glimpse into possible future user experiences. Creations often only shared within the research community present the public with a unique window into the dreams and creative trials of researchers, combining technology with intrinsic Japanese aesthetics.

The organization routinely offers complimentary art events and workshops for children and adults. Upcoming events include a Piperoid Workshop and an Origami Workshop. Other features include a space for seminars, lectures and gastronomy events, a shop for Japanese retail products, a relaxing library lounge, a small café and a Japanese restaurant with spectacular views of Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles. Prototyping in Tokyo runs through October 10, 2018 and is free to the public.
