  4. House of Japanese Culture in Paris


Japanese culture has found a prominent place in the heart of Paris and a few steps from the Eiffel Tower, its illustrious neighbour. Inaugurated in 1997, the Maison de la culture du Japon has moved into an elegant glass and steel building, a true jewel of contemporary architecture. In this immense glass space, the temporary exhibitions follow one another but are not the same: art, painting, design, decoration, all themes that the Maison de la Culture du Japon treats with originality.

Cinema, dance, traditional as well as contemporary theatre are also on the programme. And if you have some time to spare, sign up for a course: calligraphy, floral art, origami… You can even attend a Japanese cooking demonstration.

Japanese culture is on offer, grab it… And don't forget to stop by the traditional pavilion: you will be served a delicious Japanese tea.
