  • Because the building itself is an important cultural property building also exhibits is impressive. Special exhibition will leave as a national treasure. Assembling of the tea room when using existing tools, scroll will study every time. Next to the shop and Cafe & restaurant.

  • Many people have the ceremony. There is a national treasure, but can look at fumai's life as a man of culture. Cool opposition and the vase seems to be quite nice. Until mid-June so the best!

  • There are Japanese art galleries, there are some Japanese artists are not particularly appreciated, but there is time to look at it is also very interesting, if the schedule in Japan is shorter, you can not come here.

  • Mitsui families were very famous Japanese merchant. They originally started their Gofuku shop , kimono clothe shop, here. They were very famous for reasonable pricing. In Edo era, almost all Gofuku shop sell Kimono by credit but Mitsui sell kimono by cash so they could sell these without risk. Mitsui families were also famous for art collector. This museum show us families’ collections.
  • The place is a private collection museum. If you don't know Japanese then it's going to be a bit hard to understand, though the collections are pretty.
  • Lovely flower;)
  • Fantastic exhibition!
  • Has interesting exhibitions of Japanese art in unique galleries created from an early 20th century bank office. Just don't expect any English explanations, which is regrettable seeing it's in the same building as an international hotel ...
