Lead Partner
Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd.

Mitsubishi Estate has been a leading urban developer for over 130 years focusing on areas around Otemachi, Marunouchi and Yurakucho, making diverse efforts to create a prosperous city that constantly leads the way forward. Collaboration with the arts is one of these efforts. Following ongoing projects such as the Marunouchi Street Gallery (since 1972) and the Art Award Tokyo Marunouchi (since 2007), the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum was opened in 2010. In recent years, Yurakucho in particular has expanded its scope to become a “city with artists.” Believing the importance of co-creation with artists, projects such as the opening of CADAN Yurakucho (until October 2023), and the Yurakucho Art Urbanism Program “YAU” have been initiated with the aim of creating a business district where people with diverse perspectives and talents gather in order to bring new values.
