Treasures of Japanese Ceramics celebrates the 120th anniversary of Japanese immigration to Hawaii. It presents a wide range of exceptional Japanese ceramic ware from a number of institutions in Japan, representing a broad time span, different aesthetics, and multiple techniques.

The earliest objects are two middle Jömon period earthenware (c. 25th-15th century). Both show strong sculptural forms and mysterious designs. Yayoi and Haji ware (c. 2nd-4th century) demonstrate simpler and more functional designs. Sue ware (c. 6th-8th century) are examples of the first Japanese stoneware derived from Korean techniques. Ceramics from the Nara and Heian periods (c. 7th-12th century) display early glaze techniques employed by Japanese craftsmen. Objects are included from all six old kiln sites (Tokoname, Seto, Echizen, Tamba, Bizen, and Shigaraki), dated from c. 12th to 15th century. Other exceptional examples of Japanese ceramics are from the Momoyama period through contemporary time (c. 16th-20th century).
