Japanese Tower and Chinese Pavilion (MUSEA VAN HET VERRE OOSTEN)
= Museum of Japanese Art
Van Praetlaan 44
1020 Brussels (Laken)
BELGIUM
http://www.kmkg-mrah.be/newnl/index.asp?id=755

This museum holds about 7500 Japanese prints, the largest collection of prints outside Japan (they claim). They also claim to hold 12000 objects (mainly Edo Period), but not all are displayed (because lack of space to exhibit without damaging) and can be seen in changing exhibits yearly.
