    Nakanoshima Kita-ku, Osaka Hall, concert hall, will include a lot of this museum is one of them. Many cups of tea to look. From the ceremony myself, sometime during this one, I see dreams.

    The main exhibition hall is limited, so you can free entry upass Osaka revisited-la-I've been visiting, and then visit the thought I'd like to visit again. Once this summer was too hot inside the Park, so you are going to see there than I thought, and frustrating.

    Just Boring. The exhibition is dull and the explanations are too concise.

    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.
