Mitsubishi Ichigokan was designed in 1894 by the English architect Josiah Conder and was the first Western-style building in the Marunouchi district. The original structure suffered considerable wear over the years and was torn down in 1968 and reconstructed in line with Conder’s original plans. The museum focuses primarily on late 19th century Western art work—notably including 250 works of graphic art originally owned by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901).
