Special Exhibition

Imari: Japanese Porcelain for European Palaces

The first porcelain produced in Japan at the beginning of seventeenth century was known as “Imari ware”, after the name of the port from which it was shipped. It achieved wide popularity not only within Japan but also overseas, being exported to various parts of the world such as Asia and Europe. This exhibition introduces the charm of Imari ware through the approximately 190 pieces, most of which are from our collection, which are shown to the public in Japan for the first time.
