  • Without the Kansai day pass....it cost Yen 1200..and audio guide Yen 500.....the works of the master Miyagawa Kozan is amazing...beautiful glazing technique and skill...extremely intricate relief sculpture on pottery with amazing coupled with realistic colour...just simply lost of words...
  • Fine collection of ceramics, especially Korean celadon ware. Almost no Japanese pieces, though. Detailed descriptions of individual pieces, next to nothing on broader evolution of the craft.
  • This is a unique place that allows you to know better all the history of pottery, great spot
  • Was nice to walk around and see the beautiful ceramics
  • Fairly small, but interesting exhibitions and reasonable entry fee.
