Osaka Museum of Oriental Ceramics

Interesting
Founded in 1982, the Museum of Oriental Ceramics has one of the largest collections of ceramics in the world, with some 2 700 rare pieces exhibited in rotation. Note in particular the marvellous Song-dynasty celadons (960-1279) in the Chinese collection, whose opaline reflections are enhanced by the natural lighting. There are also Korean ceramics, along with a few Japanese pieces.
