About Museum Of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka

This is thought to be one of the finest ceramics collections in the world. Most of the collection focuses on Chinese and Korean artwork, and there are Persian and Vietnamese works too. However, you'll also find a couple of Japanese National Treasures - Celadon vase with Iron Brown Spots, Tenmoku Glaze bowl with Silvery Spots. From each of these countries the artefacts gathered here date back centuries, even millennia, covering the cultures of dynasties through their history. Note the Buncheong Ware collection and the Ataka Collection, which are the highlights of the museum.

Museum Of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka Reviews

  • 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.

  • Disaponting...looked for japanese pottery...found mainly korean & chinese

  • 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.
