Located in the Marunouchi district of Tokyo, the brick Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum stands in juxtaposition to the surrounding high rises. Although just completed in 2009, the museum is a direct replica of the original 1894 Mitsubishi Ichigokan that stood on the same corner, but was was torn down in 1968.
