Yamashiro Hollywood

Los Angeles



The name Yamashiro translates as “Mountain Palace” in Japanese. In 1911, the Bernheimer brothers began construction of the hilltop mansion to house their priceless collection of Asian treasures. Located just 15 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles in the iconic Hollywood neighborhood, Yamashiro has set the stage of Japan in movies and TV since the 1920s. The peaceful ambience of Japanese-inspired tranquility and unparalleled views of the city make this a perfect venue for your special day. The Garden Courtyard houses your magical ceremony in a unique, open-air experience. You’ll say your vows near a koi pond and well-manicured gardens, sprinkled with romantic lighting. Your guests are comfortable year round, with built in heaters and a canopy covering the space in colder months. The Koi Room hosts a charming cocktail hour, just next to the Garden Courtyard. Later, you’ll enjoy dramatic views of the infamous Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory and downtown Los Angeles as your reception celebration unfolds in the Skyview Room. The biggest day of your life will be remembered forever at the serene and iconic Yamashiro.
