Although the building looks old and located in the middle of a modern city building, this building was the first Western-style office building in Tokyo's Marunouchi district, and was designed in 1894. Look straight 3-storey building which is very noticeable with high-rise buildings behind it. I think both architects shows that the contrast in each era. Interesting!

a bit of Eurasian touch... touch of perfection to history of how the area looked, before and after shots as well as collections... if you are near Tokyo station... discover the area - I recall how it looked when I used to work in the vicinity for 3 years... then back to California

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

The Clark Exhibition at the Mitsubishi Ichigokan is superb. It features more than 70 works by Renoir, Monet, Jean-Leon Gerome, Pissaro and more. The curation is first rate — you get an excellent sense of who influenced who — and the gallery is well lit and beautifully presented. Recommended.

Although I lived in Tokyo all my life until I moved to Europe, and, despite the companies I worked for had offices in Marunouchi, Nihonnbashi area, I simply can't remember if I've seen the original building. Anyway, it's beautifully reconstructed with new materials and now it functions as a small museum. It's definitely worth visiting and submerge yourself in a... More

Incongruously, this large, seemingly ancient building is surrounded by glass and steel skyscrapers and you wonder how it survived here since it was built in 1894. Then you learn that the building is a 21st century faithful recreation of the original, first western-style office building in the area which stood on the same location and was demolished in the 1960s....

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.
