Opened in autumn 2013, this privately-run museum up in the mountains of Hakone houses an extensive collection of pieces from antiquity to the contemporary era, collected by casino billionaire Kazuo Okada over less than two decades. The focus is particularly on pottery and porcelain from Japan, China and Korea, with plenty of rarities found among the thousands of display items. Built on a site once occupied by a Meiji-era hotel for Westerners, the Okada Museum also boasts a spacious Japanese garden. Display information is available in English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese.
