Imura Art Museum Store

The first floor of the Imura Art Museum is a store selling very expensive pieces of antique French crystal glassware by Baccarat and Daum.

Visitors can marvel at the exquisite vases, glasses and figurines and also at the equally dizzying prices.

Imura Art Museum Collection

Downstairs in the basement of Imura Art Museum is a collection of around 50 pieces of mainly Japanese ceramics including kakiemon - porcelain with an overglaze decoration - from Arita, nabeshima ware by Imaemon as well as Imari ware dating back to the Edo Period.

Some of the pieces were originally sold in Europe but have been repurchased and returned to Japan.
