Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kansai / Osaka Prefecture / Osaka / Kita / Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum
Find masterpieces of East Asian ceramics at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, 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.

Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum Reviews
On y voit quelques belles pièces, notamment des statuettes chinoises de la dynastieTang, mais en nombre limité, quelques belle pièces de poterie coréenne et japonaises, mais la visite est assez vite c... more »There are some beautiful pieces, including Chinese statuettes from the Tang dynasty, but in limited numbers, some beautiful pieces of Korean and Japanese pottery, but the visit is quickly consumed! Next to that, there are temporary exhibitions that may allow you to discover new horizons, such as Finnish ceramics, very interesting, at the end of July during my visit. Good luck then!
年間を通じて開催される特別展は見ごたえがあり私は毎回訪れます。特別の例外を除き写真撮影可能ですので陶磁器の写真が好きな人は必見の場所です。 more »The special exhibitions held throughout the year are impressive and I visit every time. Photography is possible with special exceptions, so if you like ceramic photography, it is a must-see place.
A real gem in Osaka. If you are a resident save for a hot muggy afternoon when outdoor activity is impossible. If you are a tourist just go visit. A small space very well designed. Great natural light tunnels above some of the displays (you need to work to see these). Japanese, Chinese and Korean as well as special shows (currently Finnish modern). Enjoy the building and setting too.
Interesting if you have a deep love of ceramics. However, I felt that the collection was on the smaller size compared to other museums and for the price of the museum (there are also so many other free and affordable things you can do in the city). As I had a lot of time in the city, I did not mind checking it out but for people pressed for time (and $) I would say this is something you could skip (unless of course you have a passion for ceramics...)
