Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, Chiyoda

4.2
#12 of 364 in Museums in Tokyo
View a number of important artworks at Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, an art gallery focusing on 19th-century Western artworks. Opened in 2010, the museum sits in a three-story red brick and concrete building, a reconstruction of the original building that stood on the spot from 1894 to 1968. The gallery examines trends in the European art world at the time the original building was completed, with a particularly keen focus on the works of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Pass through the gallery's 20 rooms, watching the birth of modernism in Europe, and make sure to check out the temporary exhibits as well as the permanent collection.

  • it was nice experience to visiting this place, nice buildings with vintage vibes in it! no regret at all  more »
  • I went to the Museum of fine arts in Tokyo station area had time to access the best of. Interest was attracted by that is displayed with a mural decorated the dining room of the aristocratic Castle Hotel Redon is heard for the first time, decorative painting, pastel paintings from the Museum's largest "Grand bouquet" gracing the dining room, the remaining 15 points (Museum of Orsay). Is a large Redon exhibition that works of Redon's other many borrowed from overseas museums. Charcoal, etching is often unusual flowers such as the Impressionist school seems to be pleasant. Don't just mural on the left size of the dining room and at the time, such as the location of reproducing because I cannot watch more difficult. The description was written carefully. Also copy (a room for photo) just thought if you decorate together. Admission is ¥ 1,700! Once you paid from omniscient awareness "around the museum ticket of Tokyo station (2500 yen)". Was aware of because it was going to go to Tokyo station station Gallery later. Atmosphere of the building and the entrance of the courtyard is lovely indeed. The Cafe was packed.

  • Turn of the century brick building beautifully renovated to host rather impressive exhibition. Despite of their extensive collection, they only do special exhibition, which never disappoints you.
  • A really nice little museum in a British-style red brick building. This area was once called "one block London" and it shows in the architectural style, although it's not actually the original building but a reconstruction. Exhibition of Paris Graphics was good, a little expensive but still standard prices for Tokyo museums. Worth a visit.
  • The building is beautiful, but the museum itself is not really worth the price except for a few special exhibitions. There are very few English explanations. Visitors from the US and Europe can find much better at home. The restaurant is, however, very good (you need not enter the museum). Prices reasonable considering the elegant atmosphere, and the food is good. Lunch (as is often the case in Japan) is a good bargain. You cannot order after 13:30, so arrive early. It can be crowded, and service is slow. There is a beautiful garden, surrounded by restaurants (somewhat overpriced), but there is also a nice casual cafe with excellent pastries.
  • Major disappointment. The museum only displays their current exhibition and does not display their main collection... Even though they say so on their website. I was very excited to go there to see the Maurice Joyant collection of 19th century graphic art. Only to be told that the main collection is not on display and that I could see the temporary exhibition if I wanted -- which was completely composed of prints I had already seen in Italy and France! 2 stars only because the museum and its galleries were very well maintained.
  • An intimate museum with high quality special exhibits throughout the year and has a very pretty garden.
