The Beauty of Asian Art

Drawn from the extensive collection of museum founder Sazo Idemitsu, this display of East Asian ceramics at Marunouchi's Idemitsu Museum of Arts centres on pieces from China, Korea and Japan, all of which share a common heritage related to the craft, which still later developed in widely different directions in each country. The exhibit traces these developments all the way from ancient China, across Korea's Goryeo and Joseon dynasties and into Vietnam and Thailand. Connected to the main exhibits, the museum's collection of ceramic fragments and relics is also well worth a visit.
