What people are saying:

This beautifully designed museum showcases the very best in Japanese and Asian ceramic art. The collection includes Japanese, Korean and Chinese works. The outstanding feature of this place is the way the vessels are displayed. Each is lit with natural light, and some pieces are on turntables that slowly rotate a piece, so you can really appreciate it from all angles. If you've ever taken a ceramics class or just enjoy the nuances of hand glazed art, you'll adore this place. Note: they'll be closed for renovation for a few months in the beginning of 2012.
