The Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo opened in 2010. It is a remarkably loyal reconstruction of the original Mitsubishi Ichigokan building which stood in the same place. Originally built by British architect Josiah Conder in 1894, it was the first western-style office building in the Marunouchi district and housed the headquarters of the Mitsubishi enterprise. The original building was demolished in 1968 due to age and disrepair.
Today, the museum holds three exhibitions a year featuring art from the time the original building was constructed in the late 19th century, to the early 20th century. Located in the Marunouchi area filled with hip restaurants and designer stores, the museum also offers a traditional cafe and bar as well as a gift shop. The English-style garden in the courtyard facing the museum entrance features approximately 40 varieties of roses, including old roses dating back to around 1894.
