Into all travels, some rain must fall. On such days, a trip to a museum is in order. Wouldn’t it be great to wander the halls taking in the world’s great art? Maybe sit undisturbed for a good long time staring at the ceiling of...More

This was my first trip. Not a lot of people on a Saturday. Abt 1.5 hour drive from downtown Osaka. Parking spaces were plenty. All art work are replicas done by a sophisticated molding and painting. Although the artworks were replicas, where else could you...More

I was a bit apprehensive about the idea of a museum filled with reproductions, but I took a friend's advice and went - much to much great pleasure! It was a great chance to get an overview of European art history. It is easy to...More

We decided to visit this museum despite its expensive admission charges because of hundreds of positive reviews on Trip Advisor. What a disappointment! The museum is a thinly veiled homage to its creator, the Otsuka Corporation who specialises in casting large ceramic panels of the...More
