#5 of 40 in Museums in Osaka
Find masterpieces of East Asian ceramics at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, with over 6,000 items mainly from Korea and China. The three-story museum boasts one of the finest ceramics collections in the world, focusing on fine craftsmanship rather than the history of ceramics. Viewed in naturally lit galleries, these pieces belong to national treasures of three countries: ancient Korea, China, and Japan. An informative video explains how this treasure was unearthed, and how it's been preserved and displayed. After visiting the museum, stop for a drink in the tea salon.

  • A great museum devoted entirely to ceramics and porcelains, not only Japanese but also Chinese, Korean etc. ... The Museum has two floors. Is open 9.00 -17, 500 YEN.

  • Tickets Aleppo expensive, because the place is not large, exhibits are not many, but the exhibition is Hu figurines, is Gan serious province, is worth a look! And it can be strung with the Central Public Museum!

  • Have a great colocation of Asian ceramics. If you have history and ceramic, you will enjoy this place. 2 hours is more than enough to spend here. I wish there are more explanation in English.
  • A small museum but with some interesting exhibits.
  • 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.
  • Disaponting...looked for japanese pottery...found mainly korean & chinese

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
