This museum was fine-it's mostly different artifacts in glass cases. It's pretty small though and not foreigner friendly. All of the signs were in Japanese. They gave me an English brochure that had information about the museum, but not information about any of the specific...More

It is a small muesum funded by some private donator. The collection cannot be compared with major national museums but it is still quite interesting with artifacts mainly from near East region and south America.

Staff do not speak English and not helpful at all. Museum itself is not large and quite a walk from JR Okayama but not entirely bad for a ½ hr stop on the way to the black castle.

The Okayama Orient Museum was a surprise find on my trip to Okayama. There's nothing on the outside which sticks out about the place, and on the inside it's not huge. But I found the exhibits to be very interesting, and although there's not that...More
