Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo 三菱一号館美術館

2-6-2 Marunouchi Chiyoda-ku Tokyo

Visit one of Japan’s best collections of European art

The Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo opened in 2010. It is a near-complete replica of the original Mitsubishi Ichigokan building which stood in the same place. Originally designed by British architect Josiah Conder in 1894, it was the first western-style building in the Marunouchi district, and housed the banking department of the famed Mitsubishi automotive manufacturer. It was demolished in 1968 having aged beyond repair.

Today the museum holds three exhibitions a year predominantly featuring Western art from the late 19th century, pieces contemporary with the construction of the original building. One highlight of the permanent collection is Henri Toulouse-Lautrec's Maurice Joyant collection, comprised of more than 200 works. The museum features a chic cafe and gift shop, as well as an English-style garden popular with those who work nearby. The surrounding area contains hip restaurants and designer stores.
