The Vivekananda Cultural Centre (VCC) is located within the premises of the Embassy of India in Tokyo which is situated in the sylvan surroundings of the famed Chidorigafuchi cherry blossom trees adjoining the Imperial Palace. It offers modern facilities for courses in Indian music, dance, yoga and languages. The Centre also organises various events including, but not limited to concerts, art exhibitions, dance exhibitions, film screenings, seminars and workshops on a regular basis. Facilities include the VCC Auditorium, a fully equipped concert hall-style auditorium which can seat approximately 180 people. The Embassy’s library, located on the 3rd floor of VCC has a collection of over 8,000 books dating back to the 1950s.

The VCC has adopted a unique approach in the selection of faculty, drawing on a roster of renowned academics and artists from both India and Japan. Currently, yoga and advanced Hindi language are taught by Dr Hemant Sharma from India. Courses in Indian music (Tabla), classical dance (Odissi & Bharatanatyam), folk dance (Sambalpuri), contemporary dance (Bollywood dance) and languages (Hindi & Bengali) are conducted by Japanese teachers.With the extension of this collaborative approach to local artists, cultural entities and event organisers, VCC hopes to expand its horizons in promoting India-Japan cultural relations and exchange.

The doors of the VCC are open to all friends of India, including Japanese nationals, members of the local Indian community and expatriates, who are welcome to participate in our various activities.
