Mitsubishi Ichigōkan Museum


Housed in a handsome reproduction of the area’s first office building (designed in 1894 by English architect Josiah Conder), this museum showcases European art from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries, with a focus on its holdings of Toulouse-Lautrec works.

Also on the premises are Cafe 1894 and archive rooms (free admission) with period decor and furniture.
