Conveniently located in the heart of Osaka, Museum of Oriental Ceramics has one of the world's best collections of ceramics from Korea, Japan and China. There are more than a thousand exhibits, with the majority from China and Korea and some portion of the collection is a National Treasure of Japan Museum is one of the oldest in Osaka, which first opened its doors in 1891 with the priceless collection of wealthy merchant Ataka contains the greatest artefacts, by far. Similarly the Sumitomo Group, a global conglomerate, gave 21 pieces, and since then, 965 pieces have been added, and with the help of kind contributors, it has increased to 2,000 items in recent years.
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.
