Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo
Museum in The Ginza, Marunouchi area
Mitsubishi Ichigokan, designed by British architect Josiah Conder (known for having designed Rokumeikan, the state guesthouse of the modern Japan) and completed in 1894 was the first office building in the Marunouchi area.
It was a red brick building of the Queen Anne style. After its completion other brick office buildings were constructed one after another. Called "Itcho London (1 mile London)," the street was familiar to many people.
More than a hundred years have passed since the birth of the Marunouchi business area, and in April 2010, Mitsubishi Ichigokan will be reborn as Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo. The project aims to reconstruct the original building of the Meiji and Taisho periods by using portions of the plans and materials from those days.
Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Tokyo focuses on modern art from the middle of the 18th to the 20th century.
It will also include a museum shop and a café for artists and art lovers.
