The Otsuka Museum of Art in Naruto, Tokushima Prefecture, drew a lot of attention last year when popular singer-songwriter Kenshi Yonezu held his first live TV performance there on Dec. 31 for NHK’s year-end “Kohaku Uta Gassen” (“Red and White Song Battle”) music contest.

Many people, especially young women, visit the museum to take “instagenic” pictures of its 1,082 ceramic reproductions of the world’s masterpieces. The ceramic board replicas were produced at a factory in Koka, Shiga Prefecture, famous for its Shigaraki ware.
