Inaugurated in 1962 to promote Japanese culture in Italy, it depends on the Japan Foundation of Tokio. The building, designed by architect Yoshida Isoya, has been realized by reinterpreting in a modern key the Heian style (9th-12th century). Not only concrete but also wood surfaces cover the building. A garden realized according to the Japanese tradition with a lake, a fall and a bridge, decorates the building.
