Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan



Jiyugakuen Myonichikan (House of Tomorrow) was built as a schoolhouse of Jiyu-gakuen which was founded by Mr. and Mrs. Yoshikazu and Motoko Hani. It was designed by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who was visiting Japan to design the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo at the time. Having survived both the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake and the air raids during World War II, the building was designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan in May 1998. You can visit the building during the open hours. The rooms are available for rent so that people can fully enjoy the space of Myonichi-kan. They are often used for class reunions, seminars, concerts, social gatherings, and other events. Wedding ceremonies can also be held on the premises, which has a large lawn courtyard and a building decorated with beautiful, geometrically designed windows. It is a five-minute walk from the JR (Japan Railways) Ikebukuro Station Metropolitan Exit. Arriving in a car is prohibited because parking is not available.
