The initiative to create the Maison du Japon dates back to 1923 when Paul Claudel established a relationship between Japan and France. It was the first oriental house at the Cité internationale and its decor reflects traditional Japanese architecture.
Created by the Japanese gardener, Mr Shimota, the garden reinforces the house’s typically Japanese architectural identity. Despite its restricted size, it brings together all the elements of a Japanese pleasure garden: a pond, a winding path, rocks, artificial mounds, bamboo fences and stone lanterns.
Thanks to its 43 buildings, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
Discover them in our cultural agenda CitéScope.
Every building runs thanks to a professional and dedicated team. Whether they are a receptionist, planning manager, cleaner, maintenance or security personnel, everyone is committed to ensuring that your stay is as smooth as possible.
The campus is yours so take part in organising its social and cultural life! Every year residents are elected within their building. They take care of the life there and represent students concerning the building’s administration. We also encourage our residents to engage in collective projects and in the organisation of cultural and artistic events.
