I’m into Japanese pottery but found this to be a bit boring and not worth the terrible for the average tourist. Saying that though, I’m sure it would appeal to those studying ancient Japan/China potteries.

With a wide range of ancient ceramics from across East Asia and sufficient English explanation to provide context, this museum was well worth the visit even though I wouldn't usually consider myself interested in ceramics. If, as I did, you need a place to escape...More
