Launch of the “Member Directory” (Online Member List) on the “Members Site”

In September 2020, the “Member Directory” has been launched on the “Members Site,” in which Members' contact information is shown when the member has agreed with its disclosure.

We would be grateful if as many members as possible would agree to the disclosure of their information (at least, your name) to enable active communication among club members. Please take action to disclose your name and other information if you have not yet done so.

Please visit our “Members Site,” by clicking the button below. Consent to the “Policy on the Members Site” should be made prior to using the Directory.

Introducing a Parking Management System

Parking for Members

In response to a strong request expressed in the member surveys in July 2019, we conducted usage research of our parking space in October. It revealed that unauthorized parking accounts for 20%, and that 90% of parking is less than three hours. We have introduced a parking management system using a “flap-lock” device in March 2020 to eliminate unauthorized parking. Parking spaces have been increased by 25%. Use by members up to three hours will be free of charge, but to allow equitable use of the limited parking space by as many members as possible, a fee will be charged for usage of more than three hours. Non-member users of I-House are granted less time and higher fees. Please click here for further details.
