International House of Japan was founded on August 27, 1952. Its origins date back to an encounter between John D. Rockefeller III and Shigeharu Matsumoto at the third conference of the Institute of Pacific Relations held in Kyoto in 1929. Having experienced diverse cultures and peoples, they recognized the importance of the cultural dimension within international affairs, which tended to be viewed primarily in political and economic terms. They worked together for the rest of their lives, dedicated to the promotion of international understanding through cultural exchange and to the rebuilding of postwar US-Japan cultural relations.
I-House Japan continues to work to help realize global peace, just like these pioneers who spearheaded Japan’s internationalization, and looks forward to your continued support and contributions as they prepare to celebrate their 70th anniversary next year.
