Travel Guide - Mitsui Memorial Museum


The Mitsui Memorial Museum is located on the 7th floor of the Mitsui main building, which is designated as an important cultural property. The museum exhibits a superb collection of Japanese and Asian artworks including Japan's national treasures "Pine Trees in Snow" by Maruyama Okyo and "Unohanagaki" Shino Chawan tea bowl by Honami Koetsu. Most of these items have been acquired by the Mitsui family since the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The companies of the family with 300 years of history have played an important part in the Japanese economy.
