What is today the Mitsui Group got its start in 1673 when founding father Takatoshi Mitsui directed his sons to open the kimono fabrics store Echigoya in Edo. The store quickly grew and popularity and would soon have branches in Kyoto and Osaka. By the Meiji era, the single business would become the Mitsui Zaibatsu consisting of over 150 companies including Mitsui Bank and the trading company Mitsui & Co.
Takatoshi’s children would go on to found 11 families under the Mitsui family umbrella. Many of these families would amass vast collections of art, especially of valuable tea ceremony utensils.
The collection of the Mitsui Memorial Museum has over 4000 pieces donated by the various Mitsui families.
