Brick Square in the Marunouchi business district is part of the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum - a recreation of the original brick Mitsubishi Ichigokan building, designed by British architect Josiah Conder in 1894, that once stood on this site near Tokyo Station.
Brick Square has quickly become a favorite with Toyoites working in Marunouchi with its upmarket alfresco restaurants and cafes, pleasant water features (including cooling water sprays in summer), outdoor benches and statues including the one pictured by Henry Moore (above).
Restaurants and cafes include the Chinese eatery Qing Cai, the Kyoto vegetable restaurant Mame Maru and the popular San Francisco Italian A16.
Marunouchi Brick Square can also be accessed from the swish Naka-dori shopping street that runs behind it.
