The Mitsui Memorial Museum is home to more than 4,000 artifacts owned by the Mitsui family, a well-known Japanese clan of merchants and industrialists. The items were collected over three centuries, the oldest dating back to the Edo period (1603–1867), and are integral to Japan's cultural heritage. The collection contains such items as textiles, Noh drama costumes, tea ceremony and incense utensils, swords, and calligraphy works.
The museum opened in 2005 on the 7th floor of the Mitsui Honkan Building. Notable for its early Showa-period (1926–1989) Western design, the building was designated an important cultural property. Besides its collection of important Japanese artifacts, the museum also contains a realistic replica of the famous Jo-an tea ceremony room, considered to be one of the finest of its kind.
