I went to see the henri toulouse-lautrec Exhibition at the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum in Marunouchi.

The Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum is a red brick building, constructed as a Mitsubishi office 117 years ago. It reopened as an art museum in the spring of last year.

The weather was nice on this day, so I strolled leisurely through the vast garden. Near the art museum, there are a lot of interesting shops and stylish cafes like PASS THE BATON and Cath Kidston, so it’s a great place to while away your day off.

There are large colorful mushrooms that are printed with flock printings on the patterns of mesh design of a green knit. Also, I love a wolf patch with glitter print at the bottom.
