The MOA’s ceramic collection is surprisingly comprehensive and includes masterpieces from various eras and areas. Among these works are some known as rokkoyo, a reference to their origins from what were once believed to be the six oldest pottery centers in Japan — Tokoname, Echizen, Shigaraki, Tanba, Bizen and Seto; till Dec. 24.
