The City of Yokohama promotes the development of communities where it is easy to live and be active for both Japanese and foreigners.
The “International Lounges” serve as regional centers to support this objective.
The centers assist foreign residents in their daily life and their efforts to learn the Japanese language.Furthermore, the facilities provide opportunities for both Japanese and foreigners to communicate and exchange with each other through various events.
They are operated by civil activity groups, NPOs, or foundations, with the support of citizen volunteers.
