Tokyo American Club is a private club that provides an environment in the American tradition, where the diverse Membership and their families gather as a community for social, recreational, business and cultural activities.


The Club was founded in 1928 by 51 American businessmen living in Tokyo, choosing the top 3 floors of the Iwamoto Building in Yurakucho as its first home. Quickly outgrowing that space, the Club relocated to Marunouchi in 1935, where it was shuttered during World War II, reopening with 350 Members on July 4, 1949.

As the number of Members increased, the Club moved location once again to Azabudai in 1954, renovating the site 2 decades later, attracting many Japanese and other nationalities. There, the Club entertained military personnel, celebrities, royalty and foreign diplomats while fulfilling its mission of cultural exchange and international community.

A growing number of families joined and many other aspects evolved over the decades, prompting the Club’s relocation to a temporary haven in Takanawa in 2008 so that a stunning new premises, designed by acclaimed architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, could be built in Azabudai. Construction of the new facilities was completed at the end of 2010 and the phased opening of the new Azabudai Facilities began Janurary 18 the following year. The Club's new home delivers world-class amenities and recreation to our Members for years to come.
