The Okada Museum of Art (cp, Okada Bijutsukan) is a privately-owned museum showcasing a wide collection of art pieces dating from antiquity to the modern era. Opened in 2013 by casino mogul Okada Kazuo, the museum features a large array of East Asian ceramics, sculptures and paintings, all housed in a very spacious, modern facility surrounded by expansive grounds that feature a Japanese garden, a teahouse and a cafe with hot spring foot bath.

The heart of the museum's collection lies in its huge collection of Chinese and Japanese ceramics and sculptures, which dominate the first two floors, including ancient Chinese bronzes, Tang and Ming porcelain, early Japanese pottery and more. The upper floors focus on Japanese art, with a variety of art forms and time periods represented. Most items on display are labeled with basic information in English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

When entering, be aware that the museum's security measures are rather strict, requiring guests to store phones, cameras, bags and even stationary in free lockers at the front.
