In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Mitsui Memorial Museum is home to more than 4,000 arts and crafts owned by the Mitsui family, a well-known Japanese family in the business and financial world. These precious items were collected over three centuries and are integral to Japan's cultural heritage. The collection contains many items from the Edo period (1603–1867) such as tea ceremony utensils, paintings, swords, calligraphy works, and Noh drama masks and costumes.
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. The museum does not have a permanent collection, but instead holds five exhibitions a year, showcasing works from the museum's collection and from outside sources.
