As you may know, Minato Ward where I-House is located has many attractions such as its international atmosphere, historic cultural heritage, and green environment. The I-House building itself is registered as a tangible cultural property by the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, and the garden is designated as a place of scenic beauty by Minato Ward.
As an oasis in Minato Ward, we will continue to promote intellectual dialogue, human resource development, and cultural exchange to meet the demands of the times. Your continued support and donation to the I-House through Minato Ward would be greatly appreciated.
