Peace Palace

Japanese Room

The Japanese Room owes its name to the superb silk tapestries on the walls given by the Japanese Government. In this room, you can also spot gifts from other countries: in the corners of the room you see impressive man-sized Chinese cloisonné temple vases on wooden pedestals donated by the last emperor of China. And on the floor, you can find a donation from Turkey which is said to be the largest Hereke carpet in the world outside of Turkey. Apart from the donations, the room is also decorated in an oriental manner. The wainscoting, made from tropical woods from Brazil combined with oriental symbols and floral decorations, perfectly match the wall tapestries and theme of the room.
