This is located in a reproduction of the original Mitsubishi Icigokan building, the original headquarters of the Mitsubishi Company. One of the great pre and post war Japanese companies. The exhibit space is composed of a lot of small interconnected rooms, if the items being shown are small in scale it works very well, if not it works much less... More

Like the Philips Collection in DC, the gallery space in this building is broken up into several small rooms. It is a great space to see art in. Go when it is not busy. If you live in Tokyo, the annual pass is a great deal.
