  • The Osaka City Oriental Ceramics Museum in Nakanoshima, Osaka, is the world's leading collection of oriental ceramics. This includes two national treasures and 13 important cultural properties. There are a lot of valuable works such as oil droplettenme teabowl of the national treasure and the jar of celadon and white porcelain. I was fascinated by one point at a time, and it is very impressive. Until Sunday, June 30, a special exhibition called "Bunbo Shiho - In Search of A Time for The Sake of Being Able" is held. You can forget about the many stationery with a history, and the splendor of it. If you are interested in ceramics, this is a recommended museum.  It's also good to be able to shoot your work freely.

  • It is always free when going, and it is easy to appreciate. I compare the chronology of Japan, China, and Korea, and learn a lot of things i don't know. I didn't really know about the country near me.

  • Chinese and Korean ceramic treasures are available. Sumitomo Bank donated the collection of the former Ahousing Industry to Osaka City. Now, there is a special exhibition of "Bunbo Shiho", and the treasures of the calligraphy paper of the ming and qing era of China are exhibited.
