Review of Okayama Prefectural Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/11/12 Potentially very interesting
I visited this museum because of the Bizen pottery collection. I enjoyed seeing this, and also the sword collection, as I hadn't been aware that Okayama was also famous for swords. It was a bit...
Reviewed:2016/09/18 A bit too small and somewhat boring
Considering it was a prefectural museum, it was a small in size and did not offer a lot exhibition. It was kind of boring.

I would recommend to skip this.
Reviewed:2015/09/22 Amazingly pitiful collection for a city of this size.
Very small overpriced museum. The only things of interest when we were there were some beautiful swords, including a 13kg dai katana.

Okayama Main Areas


Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
