80131-0019 - Mitsui Bank


Tokyo Showa 1920s Unknown
Mitsui Bank in Tokyo. The company was originally founded as Echigoya by Mitsui Takatoshi (1622–1694) in Mie prefecture. In 1683, the company purchased a money exchange. By the early 1870s, the new Meiji government had entrusted so much money to Mitsui that it was basically a state treasury. On July 1, 1876 (Meiji 9), the company founded Japan’s first private bank, Mitsui Bank. The bank survives as the Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.
