Description:

Naoshima is an island town in Japan’s Seto Inland Sea. It’s known for its art museums. Built into the hillside, Chichu Art Museum has paintings from Monet's “Water Lilies” series. Benesse House Museum shows contemporary sculpture and installations. One of Yayoi Kusama’s iconic pumpkin sculptures stands by Miyanoura Port. On the east coast, the Art House Project is a collection of architectural art pieces. I thought there would be artworks, sculpture and art pieces everywhere and all outdoors. It’s not like that. When you get off the ferry you can walk to three pieces and that’s about it. You can wander the town and its alleys but it is not much else. The best way to explore Naoshima is by electric assist bike. The local map and guide are excellent as it groups restaurants by location and provides a detailed map of the locations. You can find it at the port on arrival and bike shops are easily visible. It will cost you 1,000-1,500 yen for the day.
