Japanese SALON was originally founded in 2009 in Amsterdam, by Azumi Uchitani (See Azumi's TED TALK).  Inspired by the 18th century European literary Salon movements, as a platform to bring the essence of  Japanese culture, art and philosophy and bring people together beyond cultures.


After the tragic event of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011,  Japanese Salon also served as a charity organisation for two years to support pregnant women and babies through the Japanese Midwife Association.


In 2015, Japanese SALON evolved and moved to its own premises combining the function of an art gallery with Azumi's lifetime passion for art and her Japanese native expertise.  In 2017, relocated to the current historic location, Villa Oud Holland, in Bussum, The Netherlands, where people of all walks of life are welcomed to experience the art of Japan.


"My aim is to bring peace to our everyday life with Art of Japan,

with a touch of love and light." - Azumi
