  • The room is yours to use 8:45-13:00 and 14:00-16:00, Mon-Fri, except on Japanese and U.S. holidays. For security reasons, all participants must vacate the Embassy premises between 1300-1400 and by 16:00. There are number of restaurants within walking distance of the Embassy.
  • For security reasons, visitors are only permitted in the area directly between the main gate and the consular waiting room. Visitors are not authorized to move beyond or explore outside of this area. Failure to comply may result intervention from the security force and/or removal and subsequent ban from the Embassy premises.
  • We ask that if you choose to take your break inside the building, you keep the noise to a minimum as Embassy personnel are conducting visa interviews nearby.
  • A pay phone is available just outside the deposition room.
  • Copies can be made at a convenience store across the street from the Embassy.
  • The deposition room seats about 8 people and is air conditioned. Limited electrical power is available, with standard U.S.-style plugs but 100V, 50 Hz power. Only dual-voltage, 50/60hz laptops will work; others require an adapter you must purchase yourself.
