This is an elegant museum with impeccable credentials. It features special exhibitions and its permanent collection includes many famous treasures. It’s easy to find and information to help non-Japanese visitors is available.

Beautiful display of Goryeo Celadon. The audio guide tour in English is well done. Don’t miss the collection of Snuff bottles next to the museum shop!

Even though I don’t think it’s what you would call a very large museum, it took me three hours to get through and it was amazing. Everyone working there were very polite and helpful.

It doesn’t look big but has large collection of Chinese snuff bottles and also has some exceptional blue and white vase in Yuan/Ming period. Worthy place to learn the Chinese antiques.

It's hard to say without knowing your interests. The Korean exhibit was more historical in nature, which I liked. If you don't already like textile collections, you might find this museum boring.

The nearest subway station is Yodoyabashi. This station is 4th station from Shin-Osaka station. You will ride Osaka-Subway Midosuji-Line(Red Line).
