The Tarohei Building was built in 1993 to promote and renew the arts. Inside the piled stone building, a copper plaque is engraved in Flemish with the concept of the Tarohei Gallery:
“VOORTDURENDE VERNIEUWING VAN DE TRADITIES, DE KULTUUR EN DE GEEST VAN HET VERLEDEN.”
“Ancient traditions, culture and spirit, eternally renewed. “
The concept of the Tarohei Gallery is engraved on the building. The Honcho of Nihonbashi, where the Tarohei Building is located, was formerly known as Nihonbashi Ward and in the Edo period as Edo Honcho. Access is 5 minutes from Mitsukoshimae Station on the Ginza Line and 10 minutes from Ningyocho Station on the Hibiya Line. The ‘Honcho’ area has been lined with drug wholesalers since the Edo period and is now a pharmaceutical center, with long-established stores, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, COREDO Muromachi and the Mitsukoshi Department store.
