The Japan Pavilion is not in the official pavilions of the Nations Street on the banks of the Seine, but occupies in the bottom of the gardens of left, down the slopes of the Trocadero, an important space where several pavilions are a real small Japanese city.

Built in wood, two floors, roofing hiked up at the corners, balconies with a red dragon's protruding on the Yellow Gold wall with Lotus flowers in his basement, and flying birds in the middle and crowned in its upper part by a frieze with cloudy female profiles, this pavilion evokes a delicious vision of Pierre Loti.

Tea and Sake rice wine each have their pavilion, where eager tasters.
